American Poet, Robert Frost, well known for his poem, “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” was born on March 26, 1874 in San Francisco, California. His father, William Prescott Frost, Jr., was a journalist who moved to California with his mother, Isabelle Moodie Frost, in 1873 in hopes of pursuing a career in journalism. In 1885, when Frost was only 11 years old, his father died of tuberculosis and this prompted his mother to take him and his sister Jeanie to Lawrence, Massachusetts where they would all be living with the children’s parental grandparents. He later continued to graduate from Dartmouth High school as a co-valedictorian of his class. His high school lover Eleanor White shared honors with him, but they split up after high school as furthering their education in different colleges would not help in sustaining their relationship. Shortly after, he could not take not being with Eleanor, so he left school and went to marry her. In 1912, Frost sailed his family across the Atlantic Ocean and they settled in England. Upon settling in England, Frost met some of his most influential acquaintances that helped him publish his work. The first of which was Ezra Pound, Pound was a profound American poet and critic that ultimately guided Frost to the publication of his first poetry book. Throughout London, news of a new poet following modern literature was sparkling through the town; Frost was becoming a widely known figure in London, because of his strange modernized views that were evident in his poems. Soon many American visitors were intrigued in the work of this poem that they know not of. In 1914 American Poet, Amy Lowell travelled to London and she encountered Frost’s work, she was so fascinated by it that she decided to take it back to the states with her and call for its publication. Upon Frost’s arrival back to the States (because of World War 1), he was astonished to see how popular he and his work had become.
