After Elliot’s death, they were graciously granted four more children: son Carol (1902), who would later commit suicide in 1940; Irma(1903), who later developed mental illness; Marjorie(1905), who died in her late 20s after giving birth; and Elinor(1907), who died just weeks after being born (Robert Frost Biography). Yet another major stepping stone of how Frost’s symbolic poems contain depth and perception. The bad fortune further continues with multiple rejects from publishers concerning his poems. Due to career opportunities, Frost, and his wife came to an agreement to sell the farm and move the family to England. Within a few months, Frost found a publisher who would publish his first book of poems, “A Boy’s Will,” followed by “North of Boston” a year later (Robert Frost Biography).

Also related to the greenhouse were the memories of Roethke’s father, who passed away when he was only 14 years old. This gave him the opportunity to develop a unique writing style which bloomed into a naturalistic style of poetry. Roethke had a talent for analyzing the world and identifying things that would normally go unnoticed to most people. His main source of inspiration and imagery was drawn from the world of nature. In Roethke’s first volume “Open House” most of his poems were protected in their expression.

I researched the background information about the poems mentioned in the book, the author’s inspirational reason to write this book, historical references, and real life connection to this Society for this week’s reading. Information I found from the research or things that I connected to the novel: POEM: In the book, Ky gives Cassia a poem written by Dylan Thomas for her birthday. Dylan Thomas is also the author who wrote the poem, “Do Not Go Gentle Poem”. “Do Not Go Gentle Poem” Is the poem that is strictly forbidden in the society; however, Cassia’s grandfather secretly kept this poem and gave it to Cassia. The author of these two poems seems very significant in the book since his poems are being mentioned in the story.

Robert Frost is one of the great poets of the American pantheon. Throughout his life, his work was recognized over the US border, particularly in England where he first published. The work of Frost was greatly marked by his attachment to nature (“Storm fear”, “The tuft of Flowers”); attachment that he might have developed from his life in rural communities. Growing up with a single mother after the passing of his father due to sickness, then the death of his kids, Frost’s work have conveyed the immensity of the darkness that has haunted his life. His bitterness, his depression, his sadness, his comfort zone, his wake up calls, his solitude; are some of the elements that a reader can feel reading through his lines.
Heaney’s representation of wells in “Personal Helicon” is significant to the idea presented in the entire “Death of a Naturalist” poem collection. At his early stages of life Heaney considered himself a Naturalist and “as a child, they could not keep [him] from the wells” (1). Therefore elucidating the impression, the title of this poem, “Personal Helicon” refers to the idea that wells are wrapped around Heaney 's head as a helicon would be. Based on the fact Heaney composed a poem about wells, the reader can assume he spent a great deal of time thinking about wells before, during and after his childhood memories were constructed. Once he was no longer available to publicly adore wells he had the sensation of “the darkness echoing” (20).
