On this day in 1921, Edwin Arlington Robinson's Collected Poems was published, bringing the first of his three Pulitzers. Many of his most famous poems -- "Richard Cory," "Miniver Cheevy," "Mr. Flood's Party" -- feature the melancholic-alcoholic types familiar to his own life.

Academy of American Poets
Read a biography, poetry, bibliography, and links. Selected poems include "The House on the Hill," "Miniver Cheevy," and "Richard Cory."

"Robinson described his childhood as stark and unhappy; he once wrote in a letter to Amy Lowell that he remembered wondering why he had been born at the age of six. ... Robinson never married and led a notoriously solitary lifestyle."
Modern American Poetry
Find a biography, selected poems (including "Reuben Bright," "Ben Jonson Entertains a Man from Stratford," "Octaves"), commentary on Robinson's legacy, and critical analysis of "The House on the Hill," "Richard Cory," "The Clerks," "Miniver Cheevy," "The Mill", and other poems.

"No poet ever understood loneliness or separateness better than Robinson or knew the self-consuming furnace that the brain can become in isolation, the suicidal hellishness of it, doomed as it is to feed on itself in answerless frustration, fated to this condition by the accident of human birth, which carries with it the hunger for certainty and the intolerable load of personal recollections."
-- James Dickey
