Just in time for its centennial, Robert Frost's cherished poem is showcased in a beautiful keepsake edition illustrated by the award-winning P.J. Lynch.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Whether memorized by schoolchildren or used to eulogize a president, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” written in 1922 and published in 1923, has found a place as one of the best-loved and best-known American poems of the last hundred years. Now, six decades after the passing of its author, Robert Frost, celebrated artist P.J. Lynch brings this classic to new life with exquisitely detailed illustrations, evoking its iconic moments and wintry setting on the outskirts of a small village.

Robert Frost (1874–1963) was an American poet whose work typically depicted rural early-twentieth-century New England. His most well-known poems include “Acquainted with the Night,” “After Apple-Picking,” “Birches,” “Fire and Ice,” “Mending Wall,” “The Road Not Taken,” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” which the poet once called “my best bid for remembrance.” During his lifetime, Robert Frost received the Congressional Gold Medal, was a four-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, and was nominated thirty-one times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.

P.J. Lynch is the author-illustrator of The Haunted Lake and The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, or John Howland’s Good Fortune. Meticulous research informs all of his illustration work, which includes such acclaimed picture books as The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, ’Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore, and When Jessie Came Across the Sea by Amy Hest. P.J. Lynch has received the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and the Christopher Medal three times. He lives in Dublin, Ireland.
