诗人Robert Frost(七年级阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室

Robert Frost was born in San Francisco in 1874, but he spent most of his life moving from place to place. However, he often returned to New England, the place of his later childhood and early adult years.

Robert was the first child born in his family. Frost’s early childhood was filled with anxiety, since his father drank and gambled (赌博) too much. Frost’s father died when Frost was 11, leaving his mother with no choice but to move back home with her parents in Massachusetts.

Frost’s first published poem appeared in the Lawrence High School Bulletin in 1890. While Frost could attend Harvard, he attended Dartmouth College instead, because his grandparents thought he would find success there. Frost dropped out of Dartmouth College before his first year there was over, and he began teaching primary school.

In 1894, Frost received his first payment for the poem My Butterfly: An Elegy. He worked as a reporter while still teaching primary school. Frost married his wife, Elinor White in 1895. They had their first child in 1896, a son they named Elliot.

In 1897 Frost continued his education at Harvard, but by 1899 he dropped out again. In 1901, Frost’s grandfather died, leaving him a farm in New Hampshire, which made it possible for Frost to support his growing family. Robert and Elinor had more children, and Frost wrote more and did several different part-time jobs to make ends meet. He taught English literature, trained other teachers, taught education and psychology classes.

In 1912, Frost could write full time. In 1913, his first book A Boy’s Will was published. The success of this book brought him into contact with many important literary people, including William Butler Yeats. Following this success, Frost published many literary works, including short stories, poems and a play. He made a living by lecturing, writing and sometimes teaching.

Frost actively contributed to literature until his death in 1963. Frost was highly regarded and he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his poetry four times in his life.

 

Thinking: What effect did his grandfather’s death have on Robert Frost?
