About the author (2004)

Edwin Arlington Robinson was a poet. He was born on December 22, 1869 in Head Tide, Maine. Robinson attended Harvard University from 1891 to 1893. Robinson published two volumes of poetry. To make ends meet, Robinson worked as a checker of shale used to build the New York subway system. Theodore Roosevelt later helped Robinson get a job as a clerk in the New York Customs House, a position he held until 1910. Robinson's Collected Poems won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize. He also won Pulitzer in 1924 and 1927 for The Man Who Died Twice and Tristram. Robinson died on April 5, 1935.
