Robert Frost
Robert Frost (at 1955) went back to farming to help his family which later helped him to be involved in writing about nature before he died, he had received four Pulitzer Prize before he died U.S. award for achievements in newspaper journalism, literature and musical composition. Timeline born in San Francisco, California on March 26 His Poems (as an old man) (as a boy) he wrote about 150 poems thoughout his life including his famous poems such as . . . Birches Evening
Fire and Ice Out, Out
Home Burial Mowing
Mending Wall Stopping by
The Rose Family The Pasture
After Apple Picking
The Road Not Taken
Nothing God Can Stay
The Sound of the Trees
Acquanted with the Night
The Death of the Hired Man
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy the Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had troden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Life often reflects to the road in the literature. And just as person needs to choose when he or she faces the road divided into several ways, person often faces time where he or she need to choose. because a person can only choose one shows both, this shows man’s curiosity and hesitation. he was teased by his class mates because he was "teacher's pet", but everytime he used hyperboly, metaphor, and simple rhyme to tease them back later this became a foundation in his poetry writing 1864 1892 graduated from Lawrence High started Dartmouth University 1893 dropped out of Dartmouth and switched to Harvard 1894 he sold his first poem "My Butterfly: An Elergy" for $15.00 1895 dropped out of Harvard 1915 bought a farm and started his career writing poems and teaching English 1920-1960 he went around to teach English and received over 40 honorary degrees 1961 performed a reading of his poetry at the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy on January 20 1963 died of age 88
on January 29
His Style Frost found beauty in nature and used it in his writings. The "Mending Wall" is a great example that shows nature as well as individualism. His poems depict the scenes of rural life in Great Britain. Because he lived in Great Britain, far from where transcendentalism has been developing, he was less influenced, so his poems are not obviously transcendental. chose the one that is "less traveled by" showing individualism believes that his choice has "all the difference" showing that he believes that he has a great influence on his life (individualism) chose to walk a way where no one else chose, showing individualism. Also uses nature to show this.
