About the Author:

Robert Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874. After the death of his father he moved with his mother and sister to Massachusetts. His first collection, A Boy's Will, was published in 1913. In 1924 he won the first of four Pulitzer Prizes for his fourth book, New Hampshire. In the 1930s, as he became ever more revered, he suffered a series of family tragedies: his youngest child Marjorie died in 1934, his wife Elinor in 1938, and his son Carol in 1940. Another daughter, Irma, suffered from mental illness. Frost's last major collection, A Witness Tree (1942), contains a number of poems reflecting these disasters. In 1957 Robert Frost received honorary degrees from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. He died in January 1963.

Review:

"The most eminent, the most distinguished Anglo-American poet now living" -- T. S. Eliot "Frost was the first American poet who could honestly be reckoned a master-poet by world standards" -- Robert Graves "Robert Frost has passed into the poetic pantheon" Independent "Of all the poetry written in our generation, Frost's is most likely to stand the test of time" Lewis Gannett
