Robert Frost at Bread Loaf

July 7, 2010 § Leave a comment

I spent five meaningful summers at the Bread Loaf School of English, two at the school’s main campus in Ripton, Vermont. Among the many dedicated professors who have spent time in the shadow of Breadloaf Mountain is poet Robert Frost. His poem “Directive,” a chronicle of the vanished hill farms of a former century, is one of my favorites, and the source for the title of this blog: “Here are your waters and your watering place/ Drink and be whole again beyond confusion.”

It’s beautiful country up there. Check it out!


You can listen to Frost read his poetry at BreadLoaf, a fascinating extension for in-class readings of his poetry.
