- Robert Frost: A Lover’s Quarrel with the World
October 26 at 2:00 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall
Introduced by Donna Cameron
Clarke’s portrait of Robert Frost, produced for public television and filmed a few months before the poet’s death in 1963, won an Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary. Using ample footage of Frost with students, with President Kennedy, on tour throughout the country, and just puttering around his rural Vermont home, Clarke playfully allows the poet to criticize the entire filmmaking process — a self-referential touch that feels ahead of its time. (1963, 50 minutes)
