An Edwin Arlington Robinson Encyclopedia

McFarland & Company, 2006 - 271 Seiten
Edward Arlington Robinson (1865-1935) was hailed by many in his day as America's foremost poet, outranking T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost, and Ezra Pound. Perhaps best known for his sonnets, he startled readers into attention and response through deliberate obscurity and ambiguity and demanding syntax. Many of Robinson's works continue to be published today, introducing him to new generations of readers. This comprehensive encyclopedia provides information on Robinson's poems - he published more than 200 - and his less well known prose works, along with entries on his family, friends, and professional associates. For entries on his writings, the year written, the setting of the work, background information, and critical commentary illuminating enigmatic passages are provided. For people, the entries provide biographical information and describe the influence the person had on Robinson's life. This encyclopedia has been extensively indexed.
