National Forgetting and Remembering in the Poetry of Robert FrostTexas Studies in Literature & Language (2004)
Westover examines Robert Frost's most uncanny and disturbing poems that enact a return of the repressed of the disgraceful aspect of American history. He claims that many of Frost's poems show the way in which that memory can haunt otherwise confident expressions of patriotism, troubling complacent formulations of American history as a straightforward progress toward freedom and equality.
