Robert's Quilt Fends off the Frost
Hughes and Frost -- Jerz: American Lit II (EL 267)"Whatever the poet's personal shortcomings...(he was awarded)so many honoary degrees (the list includes Oxford and Cambridge)that he had them sewn together to make a blanket." No office walls littered with those cheap black acrylic framed for this guy! I wonder, did Frost say one chilly New England morning, "Honey, my knees are a-knockin', it's soooo chilly in here. I just can't muster up another trip to those woods for something to burn! I know! Hand me that needle and thread so I can stitch these pieces of paper together and cover myself. What? They are all of those very important degrees from all of those very important places? Well, let's put 'em to some use then!". I love it!
