FROST, Robert

(1874 - 1963)
"Two roads diverged in a wood and I - I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."

Frost was an American poet who was much admired for his depictions of the rural life of New England, his command of American colloquial speech, and his realistic verse portraying ordinary people in everyday situations.

Initially Frost struggled to find a publisher, barely supporting his family by farming and teaching. By 1911 Frost was nearly 40 years old, and had not published a single book of poems and had seen just a handful appear in magazines. Taking the radical step of moving his family to London, Frost attracted the attention of Ezra Pound and within the year had published A Boy’s Will, followed swiftly by his second collection North of Boston.  Word of this new poet travelled back to America and Frost soon found himself besieged by magazines seeking to publish his poems. After such a disheartening beginning, Frost rapidly achieved success and fame, garnering honours and awards including the first of four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry, which was awarded for New Hampshire in 1924.
