• Frost, Robert

    Robert Frost (1874-1963) was born in California and moved to England briefly in 1912, where his first book of poetry, A Boy’s Will, was published in 1913, with the support of Ezra Pound. He moved back to America when War broke out, where he lived on a farm in New Hampshire while undertaking a long teaching career. By the 1920s, he was one of the most celebrated poets in America, and received many awards, including four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. His work is well known for its realistic depictions of rural life and his command of colloquial speech.
