robert frost biography 1874 - 1963

  Robert Frost Biography (1874 - 1963) Robert Frost (1874-1963) has been the most widely read American poet of this century. Though on the surface his poems seem to be simple, direct and easy-to-understand, they are complex, involved and not-so- easy to comprehend at the deeper level. The surface clarity of his poems invariably conceals their hidden complexity. A New England oonature poet, Frost, ironically, was discovered in England when two of his first collections of poems A Boy's Will (1912) and North of Boston (1914) were published there. Though he is a nature poet, he is different from Wordsworth in that nature merely provides Frost with situations, images and metaphors which he sometimes uses symbolically. What gives Frost's nature poems their strength is the combination of vivid descriptive realism and a meditative quality, supported by his wit and wry humour, by which he drives home truths that are innate and hidden in the human heart. However, to capture their multip

Richard Cory Poem Explanation | Questions  Whenever Richard Cory went down town, We people on the pavement looked at him: He was a gentleman from sole to crown, Clean favored, and imperially slim. And he was always quietly arrayed,  And he was always human when he talked;  But still he fluttered pulses when he said,  "Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked. And he was rich—yes, richer than a king-  And admirably schooled in every grace:  In fine, we thought that he was everything  To make us wish that we were in his place. So on we worked, and waited for the light,  And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;  And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,  Went home and put a bullet through his head.

edwin arlington robinson biography

  EDWIN ARLINGTON ROBINSON BIOGRAPHY                       EA Robinson (1869-1935) an American poet, was influenced by the Puritan tradition and the transcendental romanticism of his environment in New England. The youngest child of his parents' mid-years, Robinson had two older brothers whom he saw moving from success to failure, lawlessness and death through drink and addiction. He saw his own family ruined at the hands of the whims of fortune or fate. His experience of the world led him to doubt the completeness and efficiency of a lone individual placed in an unsympathetic environment. Many of his poems depict the psychological depths of a person who lives with dignity in the presence of failure as the world understands failure. The titles of his first two volumes of poems , The Torrent and the Night Before (1896) and The Children of the Night (1897) (from which 'Richard Cory' is taken) are suggestive of the sense of darkness prevalent in his poetry . As a reaction to

Though the first line presents a universal truth, it is shocking because the mind's numbness is described as 'a formal feeling'. In a way all formal feelings are day-to-day, routine, blunted and so are not acute. Using a metaphor from funeral services, the

She led a secluded life within the quiet and peaceful environment of her household and had little formal education . Brought up in a stern New England Puritan family , she rebelled against Puritanism in her poems . She remained unmarried and scarcely travelled beyond Amherst . But her poetic soul wove a sensitive and imaginative world of her own in her poems , which were not published in her lifetime . Perhaps her claim to immortality as a poet rests on her response to sensations of sight , sound , touch , taste and smell which enabled her to view her lonely existence in all its breadth as also in all its minutest particulars . Because of her unique poetic style and its linguistic experimentation , she is regarded today as a poet of the
