"Sometimes It Seems As If," a recovered Frost lecture

Literary Imagination has published a talk that Robert Frost delivered October 23, 1947 at Dartmouth College, thanks to the work of James Sitar who plans to edit other little known Frost lectures as a book.  "Sometimes It Seems As If" appeared in Literary Imagination 10.1 (Winter 2008) p.1-14.  The talk engages with the issue of poetry and belief, and Peter Campion, editor of LI quipped, "It's like Frost unplugged."

Portions of the lecture were broadcast on WBUR, with reactions from Andrea Shea, James Sitar, James Campion and Jay Parini.  The Boston Globe also ran an article (February 25, 2008).
