Robert Frost was a four-time Pulitzer Prize winning American poet, who wrote many popular and often quoted poems including The Road Not Taken, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening, and Wild Grapes. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech. His work employed settings from rural New England in the early twentieth century, using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes. His poetry has been called traditional, experimental, regional, universal, and even pastoral. Robert Frost was, quite simply, America’s most popular 20th century poet.
