Dam Committee

Dam Committee

$15.95
More Info
Snuggled between two fine lakes, the quaint Maine village of Belfry gets by on its own good looks and the free-flapping wallets of annoying summer tourists. Here, locals struggle to learn far more about each other than is necessary and face all things new with great caution. The formula works fine for everyday life, but not for a murder under their very noses, and certainly not for a sudden deluge of folding money.

Early Reception of Edwin Arlington Robinson

Early Reception of Edwin Arlington Robinson

$10.00
More Info

From The Torrent and The Night Before (1896) to the posthumous King Jasper (1935), Edwin Arlington Robinson published a score of new volumes of poetry. For the first twenty years he was rebuffed by editors, distained by critics, and virtually ignored by the public. With the appearance of The Man Against the Sky in 1916 he vaulted to a zenith of regard, and held his place to the day he died. 

The consensus of recent literary criticism favors Robinson's work in the earlier period as his finer accomplishment. The question therefore persists: Why, when he was producing his best poems, was Robinson overlooked and underrated? Any effort to resolve this anomaly must take into account the recorded opinions of contemporary critics and the impact they ostensibly conveyed. 

To that end is gathered in this volume every known review, interview and essay pertaining to Robinson which was published between 1896 and 1916, excluding appraisals of his two plays... To add to its value as a source book, Cary has recreated the physical and psychological ambience of the times in nine introductory chapters. Hardcover. 321 pages.
