The author of "Iron John" and "The Light Around the Body" is to be 2013's recipient of the Frost Medal, which is the Poetry Society of America's lifetime achievement award.


Robert Bly is best known for the role that "Iron John: A Book About Men" played in establishing a men's movement based on Jungian psychology and archetypes contained within ancient folk tales.
