"He isn't a big poet" Ah, the ignorant...
Try a library.
Robert Pinsky (born October 20, 1940) is an American poet, essayist, literary critic, and translator. From 1997 to 2000, he served as Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress. Pinsky is the author of nineteen books, most of which are collections of his own poetry. His published work also includes critically acclaimed translations, including a collection of poems by Czesław Miłosz and Dante Alighieri. He teaches at Boston University and is the poetry editor at Slate.

Even if you decide to publish poems and books you don't get that much.It all depends on royalties and how many books you sell.Unlike a regular job royalties are paid at the end of each month.Believe me I'm getting my book publish and it took me years to re-write my book three times.Finally I'm getting it published after seven years.The only way that you can make tons of money is if you are a famous writer like J.K. Rowling or Stephanie Meyer but it still took them years before they became actually famous.Being a writer is about hard work and patience.Right now is a good time to get books published because they are being hugely used in the movie industry still it doesn't mean that they'll hop on your book the first chance you get.And the process of getting it publish is long and pricey so you must have that money before you can do anything.What I recommend is to get a job like in a local bookstore,get yourself familiar with books, and save up then get started.
Maybe look at your nearest library's website's catalog, and then go get it, or maybe they have a book online. Checking online, I found maybe another Robert Pinsky who's a fiction writer, and if this is the only writer named Robert Pinsky, and he's written a few poems, then his expertise isn't so much with poetry and won't have 30 or more poems.

Pinsky was a Poet Laureate of the United States, so his work is widely available in the poetry sections of US libraries and bookstores.

If you say nine - you have probably found the selection on Poem Hunter. Here are as many again.
If you can manage an adequate response to twenty or so poems, that is as much as Pinsky is worth.
He isn't a big poet. Perhaps your teacher hasn't realised that yet.

Originally Answered: What category of poet can Robert Frost be put into?
There is debate about whether he was a formalist or a new formalist, but he is probably best categorized a formalist, because of the time he lived and wrote, which was considerably before new formalism came into being. It is also helpful to just describe him and his style, since categories always seem to stir up debate. Below, you can see the descriptions that wikipedia uses. They categorize him a formalist. This page was referenced from this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Fo...
Considered a Formalist:
Walt Whitman.The final emergence of a truly indigenous English-language poetry in the United States was the work of two poets, Walt Whitman (1819–1892) and Emily Dickinson (1830–1886). On the surface, these two poets could not have been less alike. Whitman's long lines, derived from the metric of the King James Version of the Bible, and his democratic inclusiveness stand in stark contrast with Dickinson's concentrated phrases and short lines and stanzas, derived from Protestant hymnals.
What links them is their common connection to Emerson (a passage from whom Whitman printed on the second edition of Leaves of Grass), and the daring originality of their visions. These two poets can be said to represent the birth of two major American poetic idioms—the free metric and direct emotional expression of Whitman, and the gnomic obscurity and irony of Dickinson—both of which would profoundly stamp the American poetry of the 20th century.
The development of these idioms can be traced through the works of poets such as Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935), Stephen Crane (1871–1900), Robert Frost (1874–1963) and Carl Sandburg (1878–1967). As a result, by the beginning of the 20th century the outlines of a distinctly new poetic tradition were clear to see.
Considered a New Formalist:

I'd call Robert Frost a pioneer of the New Formalism, which is definitely a post-modern trend. "Modern Poetry" sought to 'free' poetry from formal restrictions; hence 'free verse'. Frost stayed aloof from that sort of modernism, and concerned himself with expressing fully contemporary situations, characters, and emotions in traditional verse forms: the same thing that motivates the New Formalists.
To make a sensible sounding report, just indicate the poetry categories that preceded and followed Frost. That will give the report some continuity and the reader some perspective on what these categories mean, how long they lasted, what were their major features and who were some of the major writers in each.
If you are required, by your assignment, to speak in terms of categories, or to simply categorize him, use a certain language: rather then say "R.F. was a "formalist" or whatever. Istead, say "The following are in support of categorizing R.F. as a formalist". This will be more accurate and more professional sounding.
If you do this and this information is available here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poetry_of_the_United_States
You'll have a pretty good report.
