E.A. Robinson was a popular, productive poet remembered chiefly for a few short works. Poetry was his only real interest, although for a time he struggled to make a career of it. Once established, he prolifically produced long, complex, precisely crafted poems grounded in poetical tradition. During a time when his contemporaries were experimenting with poetic forms, Robinson's work often seemed anachronistic, but he remains one of America's favorite poets.

Edwin Arlington Robinson was born on December 22, 1869 in Head Tide, Maine. His early years as a young adult proved difficult and were marked by tragedy. His brother Dean died of a drug overdose in 1899 and his brother Herman died in 1909, leaving the family fortune in shambles. Robinson was considered unmotivated and unlikely to make anything of himself, and even though he was accepted into Harvard in 1891, he was forced to leave his studies unfinished in 1893 due to the family's financial difficulties. He spent many of the ensuing years employed in various odd jobs.

In 1911, Robinson began spending his summers at an artists' colony in New Hampshire, where he found more time and inspiration to devote to his poetry. In 1922 he won his first Pulitzer Prize for his Collected Poems, earned a second in 1924, and won a third in 1927. Robinson continued to published regularly right up until the end of his life, and is now recognized as a highly regarded American poet of the 20th century. He died on April 6, 1935.
