A Week in Literary History

December 22nd, 2002

In 1869, American poet Edwin Arlington Robinson (The Man Against the Sky, 1916) is born in Head Tide, Me.

Robinson is the most old-fashioned of famous twentieth-century poets, and unique in the sense that from his forties on, he was a professional poet, spending his summers at the MacDowell Colony and the rest of the year in New York City. Amidst his longer poems, it’s easy to forget the secure and often audacious mastery of his short ones.

Suggested Reading Poems The Children of the Night, 1897. The Man Against the Sky, 1916. Tristram, 1927. Collected Poems, 1937.
