Robert Frost: American Poet

The month of April is known as National Poetry Writing Month or NaPoWriMo. As we celebrate NaPoWriMo, let’s celebrate a poet each day, and understand their way of writing poetry.

Robert Lee Frost is known for his realistic depictions of rural life and for being able to speak American English in a way that is easy to understand. His work often used settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, and he used them to look at complicated social and philosophical issues.

Early Life!

A native of San Francisco, Robert Frost relocated to Massachusetts at the age of 11 with his family. Harvard University was Frost’s alma mater, but he did not graduate. “My Butterfly,” his first published poem, appeared in The Independent on November 8, 1894. After high school, Frost married Elinor Miriam White, with whom he shared scholastic distinctions. In 1912, the couple relocated to England, where they attempted farming and failed before making the decision to migrate across the pond.

Legacy of Robert Frost!

A Boy’s Will, Robert Frost’s debut publication, was released in 1912. He was disappointed by the rejection of his work by American periodicals and decided to go to England. In 1915, he returned to the United States as a recognised literary figure after his reputation had been established in England.

This newfound self-awareness and courage to speak about oneself may be seen in Frost’s New Hampshire (1923). Some of the poems in this collection represent Frost’s first use of witticisms. “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” Frost’s most renowned and, according to J. McBride Dabbs, most perfect lyric, is also featured. Poetry by Frost became increasingly abstract, obscure, and even sententious throughout the 1940s and 1950s.

The poetry of Robert Frost is still highly regarded today. Frost’s “War Thoughts at Home,” a previously undiscovered poem, was discovered and dated to 1918. In 2009, the first version of Frost’s Notebooks was made available to the public.

With his work, Robert Frost helped to forge a new path for American poetry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. TS Eliot’s view that the man who suffers and the artist who creates are completely different was defended by Frost.
