Long unavailable in its original 52-minute long version, Robert Frost: A Lover’s Quarrel with the World has now been jointly restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Academy Film Archive and mastered to the best possible video standards by Milestone Film & Video.
One of the 20th century’s finest poets, the 87-year-old Robert Frost was nearing the end of his life when WGBH asked Shirley Clarke to film a documentary about him. The two rebels got along famously — both had grown up in the city, but had a love for nature. The result of their collaboration was an Academy Award® for Best Feature Documentary. Frost’s poems were direct and economic depictions of rural life cloaked in the colloquialisms of his beloved New England, but they were intricately woven poetic forms straddling the line between tradition and modernism. An iconic American poet, his work earned him international recognition and four Pulitzer Prizes.
