Robert Frost is a well known and experienced poet. He was born March 26, 1874 and died January 29, 1963. Robert started writing poetry in high school His first published poem, My Butterfly:an Elegy” was published on November 8, 1894. Robert wrote poetry up to the end of his life. He last published “The Clearing” a collection of poems, including the poem he recited for JFK’s inauguration, in 1962, less than a year before he died.
Robert Frost’s poems explored the nature in a rather deep and dark way. For example, his poem, “After-Apple Picking” is hidden under a mask that looks like a harvester is just tired and wants to go to sleep after a day of picking apple from tree. However, we learned that this poem has deeper meaning than what is being shown on the surface. This poem is about actually talking about death as a deeper meaning. I think it is really interesting how Robert Frost, as a poet, was able to connect two themes that are completely different and make it into a single poem.
