Thompson's portrait is biased, but it led many who had been taken in by the public, pastoral Frost to feel they had been duped, and some reversed their positions accordingly. This turnabout may have strengthened the equally debilitating myth that poets are hopeless neurotics who have little to do with the rest of us. Frost was neither mask nor monster, but humanly complex and contradictory. Though his children were overshadowed by him, he filled their childhood with story-telling and adventure, as well as companionship, and struggled to help them in their troubled adult lives.
He started doing this most directly with the dramatic dialogues in North of Boston. There, with no actors present, it was essential that the lines should sound spoken by living persons even when read silently. Off he goes always when I need him most. He thinks he ought to earn a little pay, Enough at least to buy tobacco with, (The Death of the Hired Man) There is only one way to read these grumblings of a farmer over the absence of an old hired hand, and we are compelled to do so by the combination of meter and speech pattern.
Poetry, without the implicit meaning and the freshness and verve of spoken language, is lifeless. Part of the trick then in writing a poem is to make sure that the sound of a sentence, as spoken, is built into the line. In Frost's words: "The actor's gift is to execute the vocal image at the mouth. " This is exactly what he did, and more. Rarely did he borrow sentences he heard and write them down verbatim. Rather he put together new sentences whose rhythms preserved and emphasized the speech patterns of the voice.
