Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869-1935) was the first major American poet of the twentieth century, unique in that he devoted his life to poetry and willingly paid the price in poverty and obscurity. Educated at Harvard, Robinson's philosophical perspective came to combine the idealism of the waning Romantic Age with the dark pessimism of the dawning century. Given the bleak history of Robinson's own life his view is not surprising; what is more amazing is the stoicism with which he persevered, ultimately winning national recognition for his long Arthurian poem, Tristram, in 1928. This poem won Robinson his third the Pulitzer prize for poetry. . 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
