Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Edwin Arlington Robinson is, we understand, to be the subject of a full-length official biography; until that is issued, the present sketch by a long-time friend and neighbor in Gardiner, Maine, will be a welcome glimpse of his youth and early manhood. Mrs. Laura Richards writes with charming informality. She presents an attractive and strikingly handsome boy among his schoolmates and as he struggled to gain a hearing for his poetry. The story closes with his departure from Gardiner for New York in 1897.
