About Robert Frost
One of the foremost poets of his time, the American writer Robert Lee Frost has almost become an institution, leaving behind one of the most enduring legacies to date. A craftsman entirely devoted to his art, his name has become synonymous with form, creating poems that would go on to have a life of their own. Winning many awards during his lifetime, many continue to regard him highly today, as new and aspiring writers follow in his footsteps. Creating strong and vivid imagery, he really knows how to conjure a certain distinctive and unique style that is very much his own.

Adhering to a traditionalist approach to poetry and form, he would find his own unique voice within its set structure. Employing a natural pace in his work, his verse would sound similar to everyday speech, making it more approachable and accessible. Writing about otherwise ordinary people, he would elevate them, bringing out inner truths hidden just beneath the surface. Many of themes and ideas would pose profound philosophical concepts that really shone a light on a number of different issues.

Living in England for much of his writing career, he would look at life through his work, seeking to reflect the world around him. Many critics would also come to appreciate his works, as he came to be lauded as one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. Still studied and analyzed, his poetry has influenced writers from all backgrounds, as the profound impact he made upon the literary scene is undeniable. With more and more writers discovering his work every day, his legacy will live on for many years to come, on into the foreseeable future.

Early and Personal Life
Born in San Francisco, California, in the United States on the 26th of March 1874, Robert Frost grew up with an innate passion for literature and the written word. Later, after the passing of his father, he would move with his mother to Lawrence, Massachusetts, on May the 5th in 1885. Here he would go on to graduate from Lawrence High School in 1892, before going on to attend Dartmouth College for two months.

Later attending Harvard University from 1897 to 1899, he would leave after two years, and, just prior to this, he would marry his wife Elinor on the 19th of December, 1895. Purchasing a farm Frost’s grandfather would leave it to Robert and Elinor, as they both moved to Derry in New Hampshire to take it up. Then, after writing extensively for years while running the farm, Robert would move with his family to England in 1912, as they sailed to the UK, whereby he came the poet that he’s now famous as today.

Writing Career
Publishing his first novel in 1913, Robert Frost would make his debut with the poetry collection ‘A Boy’s Will,’ which would come out just one year after arriving in London. During this time he’d also come to establish himself within influential literary circles, most notably that of the Dymock poets who congregate near Gloucestershire during the early part of the twentieth century. Later in 1924 he would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for his poetry collection titled ‘New Hampshire: A Poem With Notes and Grace Notes.’

Teaching extensively in a number of different American universities and institutions, he’d also become credited with developing numerous writing programs and courses. Sitting as alumni on a variety of different boards, he’d also receive many different honorary degrees over the years, becoming a firm fixture in the world of literature. This will continue as his legacy lives on, with readers and writers continuing to be inspired by his words and his work.

North of Boston
Originally published back in 1914, this would be one of the earlier titles to come from Robert Frost as a poet. Comprising his second collection of poetry, this managed to really draw on a number of different themes and inspirations. Initially published by David Nutt, many of its themes and settings would be based in and around New England, with many of the poems being short dramas and dialogues.

Referring to Derry, New Hampshire, this would feature a large portion of the early life of Robert Frost and his time spent working on the farm. Showing his development as an author, it would capture a sense of the times and what it was really like back then working. There’s some classics here too, with poems such as ‘After Apple-Picking,’ ‘The Death of the Hired Man,’ and ‘Mending Wall’ included.

A Further Range
First published in 1936, this would come out during the middle of Robert Frost’s literary career, being another poetry compendium. Released through the ‘Henry Holt and Co’ publishing label at first, and Jonathan Cape a year later, this would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. Divided into six parts, it’s an extensive collection of some of the writer’s best work, offering something unique on each and every page.
There is some religious elements early on, before moving on to observations on life, delivered in the inimitable Frost manner. Looking at nature and rural life, he pays homage to a simpler way of life that’s both enticing and extremely appealing. The poetry flows almost effortlessly across the page, making it a definite must for both fans of the form and the writer.

In the Clearing
Released in 1962, this would be the final poetry anthology from Robert Frost published during his lifetime. A posthumous collection would come out in 1969 titled ‘The Poetry of Robert Frost,’ but this was the last one he saw on his eighty-eighth birthday. It would also contain a poem for the inauguration of John F. Kennedy, although he was unable to read this himself at the event.
He did manage to read ‘The Gift Outright,’ at the inauguration on the 20th of January 1961, which is also included here. It would also get nominated for a National Book Award for Poetry, along with becoming an ALA Notable Book of the year upon its release. Becoming a bestseller when it was first published as well, it would mark the culmination of a lifetime’s work from the prestigious writer Robert Frost.
