Robert Frost Bio & Poetry Guide

Robert Frost NYWTS

Robert Frost's poems have long been a favorite of teachers in New England, as he is often thought of as a native son, but in actuality, he was born in San Francisco. Often looked upon as a gentle, grandfather-like figure from the nature of his writing, Robert Frost's poems belied his true personality. His tombstone best describes him. It states, "I had a lover's quarrel with the world." One of his most famous poems, "Stopping in the Woods on a Snowy Evening", was made into a children's book. This poem will forever be linked to President Kennedy. The final lines were recited by a TV reporter as the President's casket arrived at the White House. This guide offers lesson plans, a WebQuest, and analysis units on several of Robert Frost's poems.

Robert Frost was one of the first poets I was introduced to as a child. His poem, "Stopping in the Woods on a Snowy Evening," resonated in me, as did "Mending Walls" and "Passing Glimpse." Sharing his work with others is a joy that writing and teaching allow me.
