ROBERT FROST “HOME BURIAL”

Peter Davidson, who edited Frost’s collection North of Boston notes: Frost lost two children to death in early childhood, another to insanity, another to death after childbirth, and still another (after the death of [his] wife, Elinor) to suicide.” Given the personal tragedies Frost experienced, it seems inevitable that a strain of grief and bitterness would appear in his poetry.
