American poet Robert Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime and is the only poet to receive four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry. He became one of America's rare "public literary figures, almost an artistic institution" and was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 1960 for his poetic works.
