Abstract

The history of American literature contains many exam­ples of the "expatriate" author, the writer who could gain no recognition in America and so went to Europe for it, the writer who turned his back on American life and tradition nd went searching in Europe for inspiration. Perhaps when Robert Frost’s first book, A Boy’s Will, was published in England in 1913, there were those who supposed that here was one more in this long line of Ameri­can writers gone European. However, on looking into the book, the reader could see that it drew its inspiration from New England; in fact, most of the poems in the book had been written before the poet went to England.
