One Hundred Years Ago Today…

One hundred years ago today, the United States of America entered into World War I. Today for National Poetry Month, we celebrate Wilfred Owen and his poem “Dulce et Decorum Est.”

World War I is important to the timeline of Robert Frost’s life, specifically his time spent in Franconia, NH. Shortly after World War I broke out in 1914, Frost moved back to the United States from England. He landed himself in Franconia in 1915 in the little white farmhouse on Ridge Road now known as The Frost Place.
