The only writer in history to have been awarded four Pulitzer Prizes and commonly regarded as America’s greatest poet

Frost has bequeathed to his nation a body of imperishable verse from which Americans will forever gain joy and understanding.” John F. Kennedy

Robert Frost was the most emblematically American of poets, a forthright advocate of both the art and craft of verse who was recognized and cherished as few other poets have ever been. Though many have been drawn to his seemingly old-fashioned simplicity, Frost’s work was often dark or ironic in tone―and always subtle and complex. Henry Holt Publishers

The beautiful intricacy of his poetry keeps inviting generation after generation to search for meaning in his work. Penguin Classics

“[Our] most eminent [and] most distinguished . . . Anglo-American poet.”  T. S. Elliott

Frost was the first American who could be honestly reckoned a master-poet by world standards.” Robert Graves
