William Frost was a Harvard graduate and was the city editor for the San Francisco Daily Evening Post. Frost’s family moved a good amount and his father, who had serious drinking problems, died of tuberculosis in 1885 and left his mother and younger sister with very little money after burial expenses.

E. E. Cummings was, in truth, a genius, for he spent his time inventing new ways of arranging poetry in certain line types, intercepting idea with parentheses and writing backwards and in spiraling loops to emphasize his intricately concealed main points. In his time, this was extremely uncouth and unheard of, and as he steadily grew to become a famous name worldwide, more wanted to read his works. The underlying meanings in his poems were so obscure, it was hard to see past them the very first time one laid eyes on them, as it was to see past the psychical barriers E. E. Cummings hid behind when in public, and sometimes even with those he truly cared about.

The creative genius’s own losses threatened to nearly drive out his passion for poetry. After a time, Longfellow learned to draw from these experiences to help him with his exalting works. The events of 19th century America, coupled with personal experience, serves to influence the captivating and gentle writings of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Born in Portland, Maine while it was still a part of Massachusetts in the early 19th century, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow grew up in a well-to-do, yet large, family. He had a romantic mindset as a child, reading many adventurous tales of foreign setting.
Although he never earned a formal college degree, he attended both Dartmouth College and Harvard University shortly before marrying his high sweetheart Elinor White.

He has gained half a lifetime of considered experience and philosophical observations (Libraries). In the critical analysis that I read, the critics were hard on Frost’s work “Road not taken.” The first critic, William George, starts off by attacking other critics, saying they misin... ... middle of paper ... ... with right or wrong situations, and the speaker has to choose which road, or decision, to take. I like to think that I can somewhat relate to the speaker. I have had to make many choices throughout my life and I will never know whether my choices were right or wrong until I made them. The speaker kind of concludes the poem by saying that he is relieved that he chose the right road to take.
