Frost sold his farm in 1912 and relocated to England together with family that now had four little children (Frost & Poirier 34). There he got to meet different popular people who produced literature. His first complete poetry book, A Boy’s Will, was published in 1913 followed closely by North of Boston which cemented Frost’s reputation in the world of poetry since it contained some of his most famous work.The onset of the First World War forced his move back to America where he bought another farm in New Hampshire. He embarked on a successful journey in teaching, writing and in 1916 the National Institute of Arts and Letters made him a member; the year that also saw the publishing of his third poetry book, Mountain Interval. He started an intermittent lecturing career at Amherst College up to 1938 (Taylor 65). Despite his achievements, Frost’s life was marred by depression and self-doubt about his talents. All his children save for two died before him. Three of his children had mental problems with one being admitted to a mental facility. Frost succumbed to complications caused by a prostate surgery in 1963 after having earned his place as one of America’s most recognized poets that had received a lot of awards for it (Frost & Poirier 54).
