Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869-1935) a three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, was the first of the great American modernist poets."No poet ever understood loneliness and separateness better than Robinson," James Dickey has observed. Robinson's lyric poems illuminate the hearts and minds of the most unlikely subjects—the downtrodden, the bereft, and the misunderstood. Even while writing in meter and rhyme, he used everyday language with unprecedented power, wit, and sensitivity. With his keen understanding of ordinary people and a gift for harnessing the rhythms of conversational speech, Robinson created the vivid character portraits for which he is best known, among them "Aunt Imogen," "Isaac and Archibald," "Miniver Cheevy," and "Richard Cory." Most of his poems are set in the fictive Tilbury Town—based on his boyhood home of Gardiner, Maine—but his work reaches far beyond its particular locality in its focus on struggle and redemption in human experience.

"Edwin Arlington Robinson's finely crafted, formal rhythms mirror the tension the poet sees between life's immutable circumstances and humanity's often tragic attempts to exert control. At once dramatic and witty, his poems lay bare the loneliness and despair of life in genteel small towns, the tyranny of love, and unspoken, unnoticed suffering. The fictional characters he created in "Reuben Bright," "Miniver Cheevy," and "Richard Cory," and the historical figures he brought to life - Lincoln in "The Master" and the great painter in "Rembrandt to Rembrandt" - harbor demons and passions the world treats with indifference or cruelty. With an introduction that sheds light on Robinson's influence on poets from Eliot and Pound to Frost and Berryman, this collection brings an unjustly neglected poet to a new generation of readers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Born in 1869, Edwin Arlington Robinson spent his early childhood and youth in Gardiner, Maine, which became the 'Tilbury Town' of his poems. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1922, 1925 and 1928, Robinson excelled in the dramatic lyric, often blending wry humor and implicit tragedy in graphic poems distinguished by precise diction and skillfully rhymed stanzas. Frequently regarded as pessimistic, his austere works tended to focus on human failures. In addition to the famous title pieces, this volume contains such poems as 'Richard Cory', 'On the night of a Friend's Wedding' and 'The Dead Village', from 'Children of the Night'; 'The Return of Morgan and Fingal' and 'As a world would have it' from 'Captain Craig'; 'The White Lights', 'Alma Mater' and 'How Annandale Went Out' from 'The Town Down the River'; 'Flammonde' 'Eros Turannos' and 'Another Dark Lady' from 'The Man Against the Sky'; and many more.

The authorized and sweeping biography of one of America’s most complex, influential, and enduring poets In the extraordinary generation of American poets who came of age in the middle of the twentieth century, James Wright (1927–1980) was frequently placed at the top of the list. With a fierce, single-minded devotion to his work, Wright escaped the steel town of his Depression-era childhood in the Ohio valley to become a revered professor of English literature and a Pulitzer Prize winner. But his hometown remained at the heart of his work, and he courted a rough, enduring muse from his vivid memories of the Midwest. A full-throated lyricism and classical poise became his tools, honesty and unwavering compassion his trademark. Using meticulous research, hundreds of interviews, and Wright’s public readings, Jonathan Blunk’s authorized biography explores the poet’s life and work with exceptional candor, making full use of Wright’s extensive unpublished work—letters, poems, translations, and personal journals. Focusing on the tensions that forced Wright’s poetic breakthroughs and the relationships that plunged him to emotional depths, Blunk provides a spirited portrait, and a fascinating depiction of this turbulent period in American letters. A gifted translator and mesmerizing reader, Wright appears throughout in all his complex and eloquent urgency. Discerning yet expansive, James Wright will change the way the poet’s work is understood and inspire a new appreciation for his enduring achievement.
