The Overview of Robert Frost
The 20th century was filled with poetry, and the poet of America that rose out of the others was Robert Frost. Frost was a poet that is best acknowledged for portraying nature in Vermont and New Hampshire at its finest and worst. Robert Frost was born in San Francisco on March 26, 1874, and he died in Boston on January 29, 1963. Robert Frost had a sister named Jeanie Frost, a father named William Prescott Frost Junior, and a mother named Isabelle Moodle. Robert Frost, a highly renowned poet of the twentieth century, transcribed many poems, and is regarded as the most influential poet of the American literary world.
Frost’s childhood was quite dynamic. At age eleven, in 1885, Frost’s father perished from tuberculosis, and soon after, the family moved to Massachusetts. In the past, Frost played a lot of basketball and gallivanting with friends. Frost went to Dartmouth College after high school; however it was short-lived because he dropped out in less than a semester. He entered Harvard University next, which was a college that his father graduated from. However, due problems related to health, he only lasted two years. Without Frost actually graduating, he has not gotten a proper college degree. Over his life, he has earned four Pulitzer prizes of poetry y in the years 1924, 1931, 1937, and 1943. From the encyclopedia World Book F 7, on page five hundred and forty-two, it inscribes: “In 1960, Frost earned a gold medal from congress in recognition of his poetry.” Frost also recited a poem to John Fitzgerald Kennedy during his inauguration. Frost had many notable life events, some of which is when he created his first poem, or when he moved to England in 1912.
