I know more of farm life than I did before I had read his poems. That means I know more about Life (Pritchard 2). The quote mentioned by Erza Pound shows the effect that the poems of Robert Frost has on fellow poets. The works of Robert Frost are considered to be some best of the twentieth-century. Robert Lee Frost was born in San Francisco, California, on March 26, 1874, to William Frost and Isabelle Moodie. The Frost family later moved to Salem, Massachusetts after William Frosts death to bury him there, as written in his will. Due to the lack of money, the Frost family could not go back to California, and they eventually settled in Salem. As a boy, Frost had always loved when his mother read to him, which in turn exposed Frost to various types of literature in his early childhood. Frost graduated from high school, but didnt finish his undergraduate in college. Frost soon worked in various jobs after college such as a mill worker, reporter and a teacher, all while still writing poetry (Robert Frost Biography 1). In 1894, he sold his first poem, My Butterfly, to the New York Independent, which can be considered as Frosts first debut as a poet. In 1895, he married Elinor Miriam White and went into teaching. Frost soon had a son later that year and started to study for an undergrad in Harvard (Robert Frost Biography 2). Unfortunately, Frosts life took a turn for the worse when his first son died, which was later followed by Frost contracting pneumonia, almost leading to his death, and a year later his fourth daughter died. The grief and sadness due to his losses and his steadily growing financial problems turned Frost more towards poetry as a relief to the morose events. In 1912, he sold his farm and used the money collected from the published poems to travel to England.

After years of writing and publishing many successful poems in Europe, he returned to the United States where he received the first of four Pulitzer Prizes in 1924 (Robert Frost Biography 3). Shortly before his wifes death in 1938 due to a heart attack, he settled in Amherst where he became an Honorary Doctorate in Harvard University as a staff member. The same year, he was elected to the Board of Overseers Harvard College. In 1940, his final son took his own life, which only fed the grief onto Frost. Frost became the first poet to read a program in a presidential inauguration in 1961, in John F. Kennedys inauguration, reciting The Gift Outright (Robert Frost Biography 3). Frost later died in Boston, Massachusetts due to complications of a lung surgery in January 29, 1963. Frosts first inspiration came from the New England setting he was raised in, which served as the basis for any of his poems. Afterwards, Frost was inflicted with sorrow and grief, which only lead to inspire his poetry to a greater extent. The various life experiences have influenced Robert Frosts work greatly, and have changed the face of poetry forever. Robert Frosts early start in poetry made him into the poet that everyone now reveres. Frost started composing poetry as a student in Lawrence High School, where he graduated as a valedictorian. His poetry during those times was inspired by his New England settings, which was where he grew up as a child. Frosts education didnt last as much as others would expect of a poet, but he would later strive on it. It was when the series of unfortunate series occurred that Frost developed a theme for his poetry: grief (Pritchard 1). His new theme helped with his success in England, and it also helped him socialize with the European poets such as Wilfred Gibson and Lascelles Abercrombie who both inspired some of Frosts poems. He was also influenced by Edward Thomas, Rupert Brooke and Robert Graves. Biography List Of Works Sample Poems Sample Poems Biography Inspired Poems Inspired Poems Original Poems Bibliography
He also established a friendship with fellow American poet Erza Pound, who helped with publishing his poets (Robert Frost 1). Soon after his returned to the United States due to World War One, he released his fourth book, New Hampshire, which won his first Pulitzer Prize in 1924 (Pritchard 2). He went on to win three more Pulitzer Prizes for his works in later years. The Witness Tree was arguably Robert Frosts last significant book of verse. Some of his best poems such as I Could Give All to Time, The Silken Tent, and The Most of It all are from The Witness Tree. Frost returned to England to finally receive an honorary degree in Oxford (1957), and he did his final mass reading in Boston (1962). With many achievements and honors, Robert Frost solidified himself as one of the greatest poets of the twentieth-century. Many traits about Robert Frosts work make his poems distinct and noticeable when compared to others. His poems have traits of ambiguity and irony and contain an adherence to language as if it were actually spoken in that specific dialect or accent. His poems also are greatly based on the New England landscape that has made it popular over the years. Daniel Hoffman explains Frosts career: He became a national celebrity, our nearly official Poet Laureate, and a great performer in the tradition of that earlier master of the literary vernacular, Mark Twain (Robert Frost 1). He also tries to explain grief in his poems, especially in his book A Witness Tree. Robert Frost was a poet of tradition that always included the simple things of life, which appear so homely that the reader can relate to a mass majority of his work (Pritchard 2). Frost is important to poetry due to him setting a standard to poems that remain aloof to the modern poetic movements of the time. President John F. Kennedy perfectly describes Frost by saying, He has bequeathed his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain in joy and understanding (Robert Frost 1).

The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood, Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it. And from there those that lifted eyes could count Five mountain ranges one behind the other Under the sunset far into Vermont. And the saw snarled and rattled, snarled and rattled, As it ran light, or had to bear a load. And nothing happened: day was all but done. Call it a day, I wish they might have said To please the boy by giving him the half hour That a boy counts so much when saved from work. His sister stood beside him in her apron To tell them "Supper." At the word, the saw, As if it meant to prove saws know what supper meant, Leaped out at the boy's hand, or seemed to leap - He must have given the hand. However it was, Neither refused the meeting. But the hand! Half in appeal, but half as if to keep The life from spilling. Then the boy saw all - Since he was old enough to know, big boy Doing a man's work, though a child at heart - He saw all was spoiled. "Don't let him cut my hand off - The doctor, when he comes. Don't let him, sister!" So. The hand was gone already. The doctor put him in the dark of ether. He lay and puffed his lips out with his breath. And then - the watcher at his pulse took a fright. No one believed. They listened to his heart. Little - less - nothing! - and that ended it. No more to build on there. And they, since they Were not the one dead, turned to their affairs.
