According to amazon.com, there have been at least 67 books written about Robert Frost.

There’s a 68th on the way.

William & Mary English Professor Henry Hart expects his biography — titled The Life of Robert Frost — to be available in early April.

The question is: If one of the most famous poets in history has had 67 books written about him, can a 68th really break new ground?

Yes, Hart answered confidently, and publisher Wiley-Blackwell agreed. Hart’s book, he said, distinguishes itself from other biographies by focusing on the psychological aspects of Frost’s life and on the importance of his family to his poetry.
