    Hulmeand Ezra Pound. During the years —20, —24, and —, Frost taught English at Amherst College, Massachusetts, notably encouraging his students to account for the sounds of the human voice in their writing. I'd like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over. Usually, the poems are much less drastic, but the bland voice quietly carrying readers across chasm scannot prevent terrible glimpses.

    Frost died January 29, in Boston, Massachusetts. After his father's death in May 5,in due time the family moved across the country to Lawrence, Massachusetts under the patronage of Robert's grandfather William Frost, Sr. This shows Frost's agnostic side where heaven is a fragile concept to him. Overview[ edit ] Written in conversational language, the poem constantly moves between imagination and fact, from reverie to reflection.

    He sought professional help at a time when little was available, and was fortunate to come under the supervision of a pioneering young doctor, a future pupil of Carl Jung's, who attempted to treat him using a talking cure. But he caught the world's attention and he went on -- citations in Congress, a spectacular talk with Khrushchev in Russia. As the boy climbs up the tree, he is climbing toward "heaven" and a place where his imagination can be free. Insofar as Frost allows to both fact and intuition a bright kingdom, he speaks for many of us. This American who sailed for England on a long-shot, knowing no one and without a place to go, rode his literary fortunes and won his prize, then set sail again to make himself a new home.

They click upon themselves As the breeze rises, and turn many-colored As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel. Sometimes his protective moves were less direct and explicable. Yet his personal war was never with a military opponent: it had been with his ravaging depression and with his struggle to find a literary expression through poetry that was worthy of his talents.

She was our land more than a hundred years Before we were her people, she was ours In Massachusetts, in Virginia, But we were England's, still colonials, Possessing what we still were unpossessed by, Possessed by what we now no more possessed.

This family homestead served as the Frosts' summer home untiland is maintained today as 'The Frost Place', a museum and poetry conference site at Franconia.
