Read full description of the books:
Children of the Night is just not my type of poetry. The flow is very staccato, and for me and my rhythymless inner-voice, the verse creates a kind of cacophony that I didn’t find pleasant. I like verse and lyrical poetry, and I felt that this kind of bounced me around. It’s also terribly dark, and a little dreary, though I did love the numerous references to Greek mythology (I, too, in Arcadia… it almost makes my degrees seem useful!).
Still I can see the beginnings of who could be a Pultizer Prize winning poet. I’d like to get my hands on some of his later works. He is very crafty in his ability to weave a beautiful picture who’s center is decay. I read somewhere that his later poetry deal with the failure of the American Dream, or rather, the illusion of it. I can definitely see that.
For me this book of poetry was a flop, not because it was bad, but because it wasn’t to my taste. That said, I’d still be interested in looking him up again.

Read information about the authorEdwin Arlington Robinson was an American poet who won three Pulitzer Prizes for his work. Robinson was born in Head Tide, Lincoln County, Maine, but his family moved to Gardiner, Maine, in 1870. He described his childhood in Maine as "stark and unhappy"
Robinson's early difficulties led many of his poems to have a dark pessimism and his stories to deal with "an American dream gone awry".
In 1896 he self-published his first book, "The Torrent and the Night Before", paying 100 dollars for 500 copies. His second volume, "The Children of the Night", had a somewhat wider circulation.
Edwin Arlington Robinson won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry three times: in 1922 for his first "Collected Poems", in 1925 for "The Man Who Died Twice", and in 1928 for "Tristram".
