Robert FrostA portrait of Robert Frost as a late-blooming experimental innovator:

At age 40, the former school teacher, former chicken farmer and former newspaper reporter had moved to England to give his faltering poetry career a boost. Walks in the country with a poet friend led Frost to write The Road Not Taken” at age 42. It’s one of three Frost poems that’s among the 20 most frequently reprinted American poems.

Plus the contrasting creative styles of Frost and Eliot.

T.S. Eliot — young genius, inspired by literature.

Robert Frost — late bloomer, inspired by people around him.
