About the Book

Robert Frost, an American poet, compiled his poems in Selected Poems (1923). Selected Poems is a wonderful list of poems from Frost's early collections, including A Boy's Will and North of Boston. It is dedicated to Edward Thomas, a friend of Frost's and a significant English poet who passed away toward the end of the First World War. Robert Frost is one of the most well-known poets in America, a voice to which generations of readers have turned in search of beauty, music, and life. He is renowned for his straightforward language and dedication to the images and rhythms of rural New England.Through the lens of rural labor, "Mowing" imagines the poet's work. The only sound that occasionally came from the woods was my long scythe whispering to the ground. What did it whisper? The speaker is unaware but carries on with his task while being hypnotized by the music's rhythm.As fall gives way to winter, the poet recalls in "After Apple-Picking" how, while ascending the ladder into the center of the tree, "Magnified apples appear and disappear, / Stem end and blossom end."Perhaps Robert Frost's most well-known poem, "The Road Not Taken," depicts a traveler in an autumnal landscape who isn't sure which way to go but is certain he must move forward.

About Author

Robert Frost

American poet Robert Lee Frost was born on March 26, 1874, to William Prescott Frost Jr., a journalist, and Isabelle Moodie San Francisco, California. Father Frost worked as a teacher before becoming editor of the San Francisco Evening Bulletin and running unsuccessfully for city tax collector. Robert's grandfather William Frost, Sr., an overseer at a New England mill, helped the family relocate across the country to Lawrence, Massachusetts after his father's death on May 5, 1885. He sold his first poem in 1894. He proposed to Elinor Miriam White for marriage, feeling proud of his accomplishment. She objected, saying she wanted to finish college first before getting married. After that, Frost took a trip to Virginia's Great Dismal Swamp. She agreed after receiving her degree, and on December 19, 1895, they were married in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Frost sailed to Great Britain in 1912 with his family. The following year, A Boy's Will, his debut collection of poetry, was released. His book New Hampshire: A Poem with Notes and Grace Notes earned him the first of his four Pulitzer Prizes in 1924. On January 29, 1963, Frost died in Boston as a result of complications from prostate surgery. In Bennington, Vermont's Old Bennington Cemetery, he was laid to rest.
