Robert Lee Frost
Birth: Mar. 26, 1874
San Francisco
San Francisco County
California, USA
Death: Jan. 29, 1963
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Acclaimed writer and poet. Born in San Francisco, his family moved to Massachusetts after the death of his father. Frost attended Dartmouth college, but stayed for less than one term. He returned to Massachusetts and taught school, worked in a factory, and was a journalist. His first poem, Butterfly: An Elegy was published in 1894. He entered Harvard in 1897, and stayed just short of two years. He became a farmer and wrote much of his early work during this time. Unsuccessful at farming, he turned to teaching again and published two of his most accomplished early poems, The Tuft of Flowers and The Trial by Existence in 1906. He moved his family to England in 1912, and published A Boy's Will in 1913. Returning to the states in 1915, he published North of Boston, which was lauded by editors and critics in New York and Boston. Frost went on to win four Pulitzer Prizes: 1924 for New Hampshire, 1931 for Collected Poems, 1937 for A Further Range, and in 1943 for A Witness Tree. His last reading before a large audience was in December of 1962. He was hospitalized the next day for a prostate operation, but suffered a heart attack while convalescing. After a series of embolisms, he died in January. His best-known works are Mending Wall, The Road Not Taken, and Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
