Jerz: Am Lit I (EL 266)


Discuss Robinson (posted 8 November 2004)" ?>

Edwin Arlington Robinson is often considered a forerunner of mondernist poetry. He was a master of traditional forms (such as the sonnet), but his attitude towards life is probably easily discernable to a present-day audience.

Like most poets, Edwin Arlington Robinson writes for the ear. He is supposed to have disliked his own name because it reminded him of the sound of someone kicking a can down a flight of stairs.

Primary Texts

Richard Corey
Miniver Cheevey
Aaron Stark
The Mill
Mr. Flood's Party

[There will be about three or four more selections... I'd like to give the student presenters a chance to select their own texts.]

Secondary Texts

Two short academic articles, available online through EBSCOHost. Your STW teacher should have taught you how to access articles through the library's database, but if not, a librarian will be able to help. Print them out, and bring copies to class with you.

Is there any way that we could have more information on these two new additional pieces? I went to Bartleby and searched under both of these and got back a big response. I am not sure which one we are supposed to actually read. Could you give a title or a direct link to the work that you are referring to?
