Though his career spans throughout the modern period it is difficult to place him in the main tradition of modern poetry. In a way Frost stands in the middle of nineteenth century American poetry and modernism.

    published in the eleven years (1913-1923) spanned by Frost's first four books: A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, and New Hampshire. Frost famously likened the composition of free-verse poetry to playing tennis without a net: it might be fun, but it "ain't tennis." You will find only tennis in the poems that follow. And yet, even while Frost worked within form, he also worked the form itself, shaping it by his choice of language and his use of variation. He invented forms, too, when the

    Robert Frost has a certain theory. That a sentence has an overall sound and that word may be taken out and the sound analyzed.
