The Constant Traveller: Staging Mobility in the Poetry of Robert Frost

Abstract : Robert Frost’s poetical work, analyzed through the prism of a constant displacement and wandering over the American territory and beyond, questions the concept of mobility in its most physical definition—from his Californian birthplace to his chosen homeland, the garden-setting of New England he likes to stage in his volumes. Treading and wearing off his (metrical) shoes on the various territories the poems frame (whether they are an Edenic environment or a meadow-stage), the Frostian lines voice the silent desire for theatrical performance.
