"Miniver Cheevy" and Other Poems
Born in 1869, Edwin Arlington Robinson spent his early childhood and youth in Gardiner, Maine, which became the 'Tilbury Town' of his poems. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1922, 1925 and 1928, Robinson excelled in the dramatic lyric, often blending wry humor and implicit tragedy in graphic poems distinguished by precise diction and skillfully rhymed stanzas. Frequently regarded as pessimistic, his austere works tended to focus on human failures. In addition to the famous title pieces, this volume contains such poems as 'Richard Cory', 'On the night of a Friend's Wedding' and 'The Dead Village', from 'Children of the Night'; 'The Return of Morgan and Fingal' and 'As a world would have it' from 'Captain Craig'; 'The White Lights', 'Alma Mater' and 'How Annandale Went Out' from 'The Town Down the River'; 'Flammonde' 'Eros Turannos' and 'Another Dark Lady' from 'The Man Against the Sky'; and many more.
