* AtTheCrossroads: "The Road Not Taken" is all about this. Or at least, it's commonly read to be all about this. Frost apparently meant it to be a satire of indecision, and was irritated in later years when he realized that [[MisaimedFandom people were taking it more seriously]] than he'd intended.

* ThrowingOutTheScript: Frost himself did this at the Kennedy inauguration. He'd written a new poem but kept getting his notes mixed up; finally he gave up and recited "The Gift Outright" from memory.

Robert Frost (1874-1963) was a famous and influential American poet. Americans probably know him best for "The Road Not Taken" or "Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening"-- heck, American students from primary through graduate school have probably spent more time analyzing his poems than anyone else's besides Creator/WilliamShakespeare.

Frost is one of the most iconic American poets there is. His work focused primarily on the joys of rural and rustic life, and used colloquial language frequently. He is also one of the most honored poets in American history, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes in his lifetime. He was also Poet Laureate of the US from 1958 to 1959.
