highest batting average book of poetry in my collection May 12 2011
By Carl G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
He's not a household name--although he won three Pulitzers in the '20s---but Edwin Robinson is a delightful find for anybody who loves words and sounds and rhythms and meanings. My other favorite poets are Byron, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Poe, Dickenson....and Edwin Robinson is, to my way of thinking, the most consistent of them all. It's a unique style. These poems could only be his. The Everyman's edition is a gem, with fine paper, stout binding, sewn-in bookmark. If you even kind of like poetry, I am sure you'll love this one.

A Major American Poet June 25 2010
By Ole Boye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful collection, with a unique music and a striking originality. "Luke Havergal", "John Evereldown", "Calverly's", "Eros Turannos" and "Lancelot" are personal favorites, but I have barely begun to sound the depths of this wonderful collection. Robinson evokes a great many moods, from austere sorrow and longing ("Lancelot"), to haunting love poems ("Luke Havergal") to bawdy and morbid songs ("John Evereldown"). The book is solidly bound, pocket-sized and elegantly designed. I strongly recommend this edition of Robinson's poems to anyone, especially lovers of Trumbull Stickney.

Oh, what a treasure! Jan. 23 2009
By Jack E. Stoudenmire Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A slender volume, carefully stocked with some of Robinson's finest poems. There are some notable omissions, but the most famous ones are here; and for the price, it's a can't-lose addition to one's own library, ideal as a gift.
Poems to share... June 15 2013
By lmelton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For such a well known poet, the reviews are sparse promoting this book. It is a well made, hard cover, pocket sized volume of poetry. It is reasonably priced. Robinson poems could be read aloud to various audiences for various occasions. Often quoted and even made into song famously by Simon and Garfunkel, Robinson's poems are complex in structure while lyrical and often humorously ironic. If you love poetry and are seeking something less didactic and angry than today's hip hop poetry slam, or if you like your poems to tell a story, then consider this volume.

As always, the Everyman's Library edition satisfies. In this age of the resurgence of rhyme and meter, Robinson's work should be read and appreciated for his elegant schemes, and his penetrating insights.
