Robert Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874. He moved to New England at the age of 11, the region he became strongly associated with for the rest of his life. Frost’s first poem was published in 1894, but Frost spent much of his youth drifting from occupation to occupation. After his New Hampshire farm failed in 1912, Frost moved to England where he met and befriended several major British poets of the early 20th century.
By the time Frost returned to the States, in 1915, he had published two collections of poetry and settled into a life as a widely-known poet as he became enormously popular during the 1920s. Frost lived and taught in New England for the rest of his life, winning several Pulitzer Prizes before dying in Boston in 1963.
