This website is about the sensual qualities of the poem After Apple Picking, by Robert Frost.
It was created by J.T. Best after an extensive effort to have an interpretive essay published that
elucidates the poem's often mentioned, but never explained, sexual connotations. The essay was written because those sexual connotations have,
thus far, escaped delineation by any other writer.
Unfortunately, Mr. Best's essay regarding the sensual side of After
Apple Picking, by Robert Frost has been, and continues to be, rejected by the mainstream literary world. That
is no doubt partially because J.T. Best reveals After Apple Picking to be a bit chauvinistic, laced
with sexual depth and filled with lust. So, standing alone, and consumed with the self-imposed desire to make those
cryptic sexual connotations available, J.T. Best created this website for all the After Apple Picking enthusiasts
who have an interest in how the sensual side of this particular Robert Frost poem might be revealed.
From a common sense approach After Apple Picking is much too banal a poem to have been written for the purpose
of poetically reflecting upon the harvest of apples. From an analytical perspective the poem is a multi-level
Robert Frost creation replete with sexual metaphors that are inescapable given a study of the entire poem. No
single line or poetic phrase standing alone is decisive. In fact the sexual connotations embraced within the context
of After Apple Picking become an entire sub-story that probably serves to titillate the subconscious of the reader.
That is J.T. Best's main assertion as to why After Apple Picking possesses such "feel good" reader qualities.
comments are welcome regarding J.T. Best's journey into the depths of the Robert Frost psyche, for it was from there that
he asserts the pen hand of Robert Frost was guided to write After Apple Picking. Should any readers choose to

Please be advised the essay on
the following page describes the sexual connotations within Mr. Frost's apple tale in graphic detail and as such might
rightfully be regarded as intellectual literature for adults only.
