An Edwin Arlington Robinson Encyclopedia
About the Book
Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935) was hailed by many in his day as America’s foremost poet, outranking T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost, and Ezra Pound. Perhaps best known for his sonnets, he startles readers into attention and response through obscurity and ambiguity and demanding syntax. Many of Robinson’s works continue to be published today, introducing him to new generations of readers.
This comprehensive encyclopedia provides information on Robinson’s poems—he published more than 200—and also his less well-known prose works, along with entries on his family, friends, and professional associates.
Entries on his writings give the year published, a summary, background information, and critical commentary illuminating enigmatic passages. Entries on people provide biographical information and describe the influence the person had on Robinson’s life.
