Frost was hesitant both to accept the Russians' admiration and to acknowledge the status and the energy of the Russian intelligentsia. He was loath to separate intellectual speculation from politics. At breakfast this Friday morning, we had chatted about the evening before and had gone on to discuss the social function in Russia of the writer and of the intellectual. Frost refused to regard the Russian intellectuals differently from the American, most of whom he considered liberal sapheads, casuists, brain pinchers, men of small faith and less courage. A few days later, however, he had imperceptibly changed his point of view.

Who's Who in America lists the order of cats in hunting, fishing, bird-watching, farming, domestic service--the dictionary order of cats who have made it. So begins "Identity Crisis," one of the delightful poems in F. D. Reeve's witty, musical, biting book of verse.

Franklin Reeve worked on the docks before taking up an academic career. He taught Russian language and literature at Columbia University. After teaching at Columbia, Reeve moved to Wesleyan University in 1962 as chairman of the Russian Department. In 1967, he joined Wesleyan's College of Letters where he taught literature, humanities and creative writing until his retirement in 2002. During the course of his career he had visiting appointments at Oxford University, Yale, and Connecticut College. He also served as exchange professor in Soviet Union.
Reeve published ten volumes of poetry, seven books of fiction, twelve books of translations, three books of literary criticism, four libretti, and countless uncollected essays, articles, stories, poems, reviews, and translations in journals across the country from The Atlantic to The New Yorker and The Sewanee Review. He reviewed for the New York Times and the Washington Post. Reeve also was the founding editor of Poetry Review and the secretary of Poets House in its formative years.
