Robert Frost (1874-1963)

Poet

Robert Frost was born in San Francisco.  After the death of his father in 1885, his family moved back to New England.  Frost settled in New Hampshire.  His poems were inspired by the region’s beauty, landscapes, folkways, and speech patterns.  His graceful, plain-language poems are most often set in New England, particularly Vermont and New Hampshire.  Frost won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry four times (1924, 1931, 1937, and 1943).  Congress awarded Frost a gold medal for his poetry in 1960.  In 1961, he read a poem at John F. Kennedy’s presidential inauguration.
