Re: Frost/Shade Query
Dear Frances
There are several links - the fact that Frost is invoked by name in the text (p 41 of Penguin edition) is one factor. Shade is also a Frostian with his philosophical/transcendental tendencies etc .A Kind Regards

I understand Robert Frost was intended to be the model for John Francis Shade in Pale Fire, but I don't know why people have come to that conclusion.  Any ideas?  Thanks, Fran Assa
