Biographical history

Robert Frost was born and raised in San Francisco, U.S.A. He married in 1895 and moved to New England. While he lived in New England he attended Harvard for two years. Unfortunately two of his children died and after their deaths he moved his family to England. In England he had published a volume of verse called "A Boy's Will" and continued to write poetry. Robert was friends with Ezra Pound and Edward Thomas. He returned to the U.S.A. and moved to New Hampshire where he continued to write. Robert won the Pulitzer Prize for Collected Poems (1923), A Further Range (1936) and A Witness Tree (1942). He continued to write until the time of his death in 1963.
