Abstract. The article compares the work of the American poet Robert Frost and the British poet Edward Thomas, who were bound with strong and fruitful "Parnassus" friendship, although short-lived because of the latter’s death in the First World War. Thomas, a prominent literary critic, strengthened Frost’s poetic reputation, who, in turn, contributed to his self-expression in poetry. Also, creative kinship united the poets. Both, independently of each other, developed the theory of "poetry for the ear" avoiding extremes. Both, preferring rural life to urban one, wrote on the theme of nature, and each created his own unique poetic microcosm. The author shows te similarities and differences of these poetic worlds.
