Meet the Poets: Robert Frost – 1924, 1931, 1937, and 1943 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry

“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.” — Robert Frost.

Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) was an American poet. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech. His work often employed settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, using them to look at complex social and philosophical themes. One of the most popular and critically respected American poets of his generation, Frost was honored often during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry (1924, 1931, 1937, and 1943). He was the 1958 and 1959 United States Poet Laureate.
