Robert Frost

Born:
March 26, 1874
San Francisco, California

Died:
January 29, 1963
Boston, Massachusetts

Robert Frost was, quite simply, one of America’s leading 20th century poets. His poetry has been called traditional, experimental, regional, universal, and even pastoral. His teenage years and early twenties consisted of various jobs including teaching, working in a mill, reporting and editing, and working as a cobbler. In 1895, Frost married Elinor White and for the next ten years his life would be devoted to writing his rarely published poems. Frost received numerous academic, literary, and public honors and also won the Pulitzer Prize four times. He won it for New Hampshire in 1923, Collected Poems in 1930, A Further Range in 1936, and A Witness Tree in 1942. Robert Frost’s first professional poem “My Butterfly” was published on November 8, 1894, in the New York newspaper The Independent. This was the first of many powerful and memorable published poems.
