Though Guest wrote much about America, it's worth noting that the U.S. was not his home by birth. Guest was actually born in England in 1881 and immigrated to the United States along with his family ten years later. Just four years after his first poem was published, however, Guest became a naturalized U.S. citizen, making America his homeland by choice. Ultimately, his writing would earn him the title of the People's Poet.
