A Boy's Will is a poetry collection by Robert Frost. It is Frost's first book of poems, published by David Nutt in 1913. Following the success of North of Boston in 1914, Henry Holt and Company republished A Boy's Will in 1915. The New York Times said in a review, "In republishing his first book after his second, Mr. Robert Frost has undertaken the difficult task of competing with himself."[1]

Poet William Butler Yeats said he considered A Boy's Will "the best poetry written in America in a long time."[2]
