Famous Poet- Robert Frost

  1. 1.  born in San Francisco in 1874.  his mother brought him to New England at his eleven, with which his poetry has always been associated.  After graduating from high school in 1892, Frost entered Dartmouth College but soon left it.
  2. 2. In 1897, he was accepted as a special student by Harvard but withdrew after two years because of his increasing dislike for academic convention. For the next twelve years, Frost made a minimal living by teaching and farming while continuing to write his poems. In 1912, he and his family moved to England, where he found a publisher for His first book of verse, A boy’s will (1913).

  3. 3. • Uses ordinary speech within formal patterns of line and stanza • Uses traditional forms and structures while exploring modern themes of alienation and isolation • Frost believed that the poet's response to modern life was to revert back to traditional forms.
  4. 4.  Frost’s poetry revolves around New England’s nature. He saw nature as a storehouse of analogy and symbol, so his concern with nature reflected deep moral uncertainties.  His poetry often probes mysterious of darkness and irrationality in the bleak and chaotic landscapes of an indifferent universe.  The quest of the solitary person to make sense of the world has become the central theme of all Frost’s collections and made his poetry among the most accessible of modern writers.  The poetry of Robert Frost combined pastoral imagery with solitary philosophical themes.
  5. 5. •Frost rejected the revolutionary poetic principles of his contemporaries, used traditional forms such as the blank verse, plain language of rural New Englanders, and a graceful style. •There is a steady tone of wry humor, and a virtually inexhaustible verbal grace. •He used symbols from everyday country life to express his deep ideas. •As a whole, Frost’s art is an act of clarification, which, without simplifying the truth, renders it in some degree accessible to everyone.
  6. 6.  Won 4 Pulitzer Prizes,  Read poetry at a presidential inauguration.  Received honorary degrees from 44 colleges  Unofficial poet Laureate, one of the most celebrated American’s modernist poets
  7. 7. • Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense • Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in • I’m not confused. I’m just well mixed • A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness
