(March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963)
was an American poet. His work was initially published in England
before it was published in America.
He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life
and his command of American colloquial speech.
His work frequently employed settings from rural life
in New England in the early twentieth century,
using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes.
One of the most popular and critically respected American poets of
the twentieth century, Frost was honored frequently during his
lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. He became one
of America's rare "public literary figures, almost an artistic
institution." He was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 1960
for his poetical works. On July 22, 1961, Frost was named Poet
laureate of Vermont. -WikiPedia
