Edwin Arlington Robinson

1869 - 1935
Edwin Arlington Robinson was one of the most prolific major American poets of the 20th century. Ironically, despite his extensive literary output, very few of his poems have won renown. Nowadays, he is regarded as unique among the American poets of his time for his devotion to his art. During his lifetime, he won 3 Pulitzer Prizes and was nominated 4 times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.
