Robert Frost

The Life of America's Poet

Series: People to Know Today

By Sara McIntosh Wooten

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.” Four-time Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Robert Frost used simple language to describe nature and ordinary life. Frost himself switched paths in 1912, quitting his teaching position to become a full-time poet. His poems, easy and insightful to children and adults alike, hold a special place in America’s hearts. This outstandingly composed biography introduces a new generation to the remarkable and beloved poet: a man with courage and the determination to hold on to a dream despite all obstacles.
