Robert Frost and Northern Irish Poetry is a pioneering study of the politics of Irish-American literary connections and exchanges, offering a much-needed assessment of Frost's significance for Northern Irish poetry of the past half-century. Drawing upon a diverse range of previously unpublished archival sources, Buxton takes as her particular focus the triangular dynamic of Frost, Heaney, and Muldoon, exploring the differing strengths which each Irish poet finds in Frost's work. This appraisal of Frost in a non-American context not only enables a fuller appreciation of Heaney's and Muldoon's poetry but also provides valuable insight into the nature of trans-national and trans-generational poetic influence.
