Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edwin Arlington Robinson (December 22, 1869 - April 6, 1935) was an American poet who won three Pulitzer Prizes for his work. Robinson was born in Head Tide, Lincoln County, Maine, but his family moved to Gardiner, Maine, in 1870. He described his childhood in Maine as "stark and unhappy" his parents, having wanted a girl, did not name him until he was six months old, when they visited a holiday resort; other vacationers decided that he should have a name, and selected a man from Arlington, Massachusetts to draw a name out of a hat. His brother Dr. Dean Robinson died of a drug overdose . It has been speculated that his poem "Richard Cory" may relate to his other brother, Herman Robinson. His early difficulties led many of his poems to have a dark pessimism and his stories to deal with "an American dream gone awry." In late 1891, at the age of 21, Edwin entered Harvard University as a special student.show more
