Robert Lee Frost (1874 – 1963) was a highly-regarded American poet known for realistic depictions of New England rural life as well as his use of American colloquial speech. His work used homespun themes to explore complex philosophical ideas. Frost received four Pulitzer Prizes and the Congressional Gold Medal for his work.
