At the young age of only eleven Frost’s father passed away. Soon after his death the family left California to settle in Massachusetts. As young Frost grew-up he attended high school in that state, later would enter Dartmouth College, but would remain there less that one semester. Later he returned to Massachusetts where he would be a school teacher along with two other jobs he held as a mill worker and a newspaper reporter. Then in 1895 Frost married Elinor White whom he had been co-valedictorians with in high school.
Frost studied for a brief stint at Dartmouth College and joined the Theta Delta Chi fraternity, before leaving to ultimately work as editor of the local newspaper. In 1894 Robert frost sold his first professional poem, “My Butterfly. An Elegy,” to The Independent for fifteen dollars, and had five poems privately printed thereafter. Frost proposed to Elinor Miriam White, a former classmate from St. Lawrence University due to his recent success. He waited for her to graduate while studying liberal arts at Harvard University, and in 1895 were married and had six children: sons Elliot, Carol, and daughters Lesley, Irma, Marjorie, and Elinor Bettina.
Robert Frost was born March 26 1874 in San Francisco where he spent the first eleven years of his life until his father died. It was then that he moved with his family to Lawrence, Massachusetts. While in high school in Lawrence, Frost fell in love with Elinor White, they became engaged and married in 1896 (the same year that their son Elliott was born). After withdrawing from Harvard in 1897, the Frost’s moved to a farm in Methuen, Massachusetts, and began raising poultry. Three years later Elliott died, along with Frost’s mother.
He graduated as valedictorian in High School in 1892 and attended Dartmouth College, but quit shortly after he started. Two years later he sold his first work "My Butterfly: An Elegy" and later that year he married Elinor White. He attempted school again at Harvard but left before getting his degree. The next 10 years he wrote poems and worked small jobs throughout New Hampshire. In 1912 he moved his wife and four kids to England to work on poetry full time.
In 1888, he passed the entrance exam so that he could enter Lawrence High School. The next year, he finished at the top of his class. After that year, he started really getting into poetry. His first published poem was "La Noche Triste," in the Lawrence High School Bulletin. The next month, "The Song of the Wave" was published (Bio).
Although he never earned a formal college degree, he attended both Dartmouth College and Harvard University shortly before marrying his high sweetheart Elinor White. His wife’s pregnancy and an illness in the family caused Frost to drop out of college. Still living in New Hampshire, Frost tried being a teacher, a cobbler, an editor, and a farmer to support his children and wife. Frost had two children; Eliot (born in 1896), and Lesley (born in 1897 and who later suffered from mental illness). In 1900 Frost was diagnosed with tuberculosis and moved his poultry farm to Derry, New Hampshire.
They settled in Salem, Massachusetts, where his grandfather lived and offered them a home. He started high school in Lawrence, Massachusetts, where he began to write and he published his first poem. After high school he attended Dartmouth College however he left and started to work as a reporter for the Lawrence Daily American. Frost moved from job to job, working in mills, as a reporter for newspaper, teaching and writing poetry. He became engaged to Elinor White, his classmate and in 1895 Frost married her; they had six children.
On May 5, 1885 Frost's father dies of tuberculosis. The family moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts to live with grandparents. In the following year the family moved again, this time to Salem Depot, New Hampshire. Frost's mother began teaching and Robert and Jeanie enter the fifth grade. During 1888 and 1889, Robert Lee Frost graduated one year ahead of the rest of his class from Lawrence High School.
In 1912 he went to England, where he received his first acclaim as a poet (Frost 2). In 1892 Robert Frost graduated from Lawrence High School as class poet and as co-valedictorian with a sensitive, brilliant girl named Elinor Miriam White, whom he married three years later. His paternal grandfather was however eager to make a lawyer out of the gifted young man and persuaded him to enter Dartmouth College in the fall of 1892. Throughout those years he wrote poems, which he continu... ... middle of paper ... ... of his separate poetic moods may explore many possible attitudes toward human experience, his poems repeatedly return to an implied attitude of devout reverence and belief, which constitute the infallible core of his work (O’Neill 5). Overall, Robert Frost is one of the most important writers of his time.
He received aid from poets suck as Edward Thomas and Rupert Brooke, and published his first two volumes of poetry, A Boy's Will in 1913, and North of Boston in 1914. These works were well received not only in England, but also in America. Frost returned to America in 1915 and continued writing his poetry. He produced many volumes of poetry, among which are Mountain Interval (1916), West-Running Brook (1928), A Further Range (1936), A Masque of Reason (1945), and In the Clearing (1962). Frost received the Pulitzer Prize for poetry four times (1924, 1931, 1937, 1943) and became the first poet to read a poem at the presidential inauguration of John F. Kennedy.
