I find it very interesting that Robinson writes about such real and horrible things such as suicide. The author most likely has some source or idea of where their writing is stemming from.
The Mill story deals with the miller and his wife both committing suicide. Looking deeper into the poem it can seem as though the miller’s wife was making this up in her head. I personally do think they committed suicide. It just seems that way it is the classic "fake your own death."
Mr. Flood's Party” is a poem about an older gentleman who is an alcoholic. In this poem this is agues because the detail is lacking. This poem displays a man whose only relationship is with himself and a jug of alcohol. After I read this poem I felt the man was outcaste by his friends and had nowhere else to go. Because he looks down at the town he used to belong to, he has turned towards his only friend, the alcohol, in his times of loneliness. He realized he had ruined his life, he quietly calls for help because he could drink him self to death.
