Description
At the time of his death in 1935, Edwin Arlington Robinson was a pivotal figure in modern American poetry, the equal of Frost and Stevens, yet over the years his reputation has undeservedly declined. Robinson was the first to write about ordinary people and events—an honest butcher consumed by grief, a miser with "eyes like little dollars in the dark," ancient clerks in a dry goods store measuring out their days like bolts of cloth—and he explored the interior worlds of the people around him in simple yet powerful rhetoric. Scott Donaldson—also the biographer of Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Cheever, and William Townley Scott—tells the intriguing story of Robinson's life, based in large part on a newly available trove of thousands of letters, and recounts the poet's profoundly important role in the development of modern American literature. "If [Robinson's] reputation is ever to revive, and it should," wrote Charles Simic in the New York Review of Books, "the credit ought to go to Scott Donaldson and his biography."
