Robert Frost

Robert Frost was one of the few poets who made their initial debut during the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. Frost was born in the year 1974 in San Francisco but he has travelled to different places as he was growing up. Mr. Frost’s love for writing poems and reading became evident when he went to high school. He even went to Harvard for college. Unfortunately, he never got to finish a formal degree there. When he left college, he was employed in different jobs from a teacher to an editor.

It was not until the year 1894 that his first poem was published in the newspaper. The title of the poem was “My Butterfly”. Frost was also able to publish a few books and made some good friendships with other poets in England when he lived there with his wife for a few years.

Frost was considered a modernist poet. But there were a few critics who commented on how modern his works really were as they stated that Frost’s poems were very traditional and were not really what modernist type of poetry was all about. Nevertheless, those criticisms did not discount the success of Frost especially when conveying man’s experiences and actions of normal people which made his poems resonate to the audience.
