Overview

When A BOY'S WILL and NORTH OF BOSTON first appeared in 1913 and 1914, they launched Robert Frost as an American poet of brilliant promise. These early poems, published here in their original unedited form, reveal the early genius of an artist whose body of work would become part of our national heritage. A BOY'S WILL is a lyrical excursion into boyhood, set on a landscape of subtle rhythms and tones. And - which includes two of Frost's most famous works, "Mending Wall" and "The Death of a Hired Man" - evokes the simple but rich dramas and ironies of life. It was in these early volumes that Frost first emerged as the quintessential American voice in modern poetry - but also as a voice whose lush resonance could reach "all sorts and all kinds."

Meet the Author

Robert Lee Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874. When he was ten, his father died and he and his mother moved to New England. He attended school at Dartmouth and Harvard, worked in a mill, taught, and took up farming, before he moved to England, where his first books of poetry, A Boy’s Will (1913) and North of Boston (1914), were published. North of Boston brought him recognition as the preeminent voice of New England and as one of America’s major poets. In 1915 he returned to the United States and settled on a farm in New Hampshire. Four volumes of his poetry, New Hampshire (1923), Collected Poems (1930), A Further Range (1936), and A Witness Tree (1942) were all awarded the Pulitzer Prize. He died in 1963.
