Summary
Mezey's selection focuses on Robinson's marvelous short lyrics -- he was a master of the narrative lyric -- and includes a generous sampling of medium-length pieces. Included as an Appendix is the review that President Theodore Roosevelt, one of Robinson's most devout supporters, wrote of the poet's first book; and Robert Mezey has prepared a captivating, informative Introduction exclusive to our volume.
