The Library of Congress Reports: Archie Loves Robert Frost

The Library of Congress Reports: Archie Loves Robert Frost

Robert Frost was an American poet and the Poet Laureate to the Library of Congress from 1958 to 1959. A popular and often-quoted poet, Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, including receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. He is arguably the most widely known poet of the 20th Century. His poetry continues to be enjoyed by millions of people … including Archie Andrews!

In ARCHIE #602, Archie is thinking about his life so far; imagines marrying Veronica Lodge and reading his favorite poem, “The Road Less Traveled” by Robert Frost, to their two children. But in ARCHIE #603, Archie goes down a lane that splits into two paths and takes a less-traveled one, just as Robert Frost described in his poem.  By selecting a different route for his walk, the story changes dramatically as Archie sees what his life would be like with Betty Cooper!

Archie’s decision to choose between Betty & Veronica, as well as his love of Robert Frost's poetry, recently reached the U.S. Library of Congress. The story is being covered at http://www.loc.gov/poetry/archiecomic.html.

BRAVO! BRAVO!

Archie comics IS far more than just cute teen-oriented comics for children; it HAS mentioned George Orwell's 1984 and "Rosebud" from Orson Welles' famous movie, Citizen Kane (it was featured in that story where Archie saved an old lady from being kicked out of her own home by a greedy antique dealer, BTW!)

What's more, some Archie comics DO feature some great cartooning and writing skills (think Dan DeCarlo and Harry Lucey, for instance.)
