Robert Frost (1874-1963) became the most popular poet in America after years of struggle. He received the Pulitzer Prize in 1924, 1931, 1937, and 1943. He was invited to read one of his poems at the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy in 1961. This was an unusual honor for a poet and an indication of Frost's prestige. Some of his poetry is internationally known, including "The Road Not Taken," "The Death of the Hired Man," and "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening." There is a wealth of information about Frost's poetry in eNotes reference material. Classes in American literature invariably assign Frost's poems for analysis and appreciation.
