The work presented here comprises the beginning of a new, digital edition of the letters written by American poet Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869-1935). This first iteration includes the letters written by Robinson between 1889 and 1895. When complete, this publication will contain all of the letters known to have been written by the poet until his death in 1935.
This project is based on work started during the last century by Wallace L. Anderson (1917-1984) and left unpublished at his death. Anderson's research materials, transcripts, and manuscript were donated to the Colby College Libraries in 2001.
This online edition is presented in a fully searchable, open access format in order to stimulate interest in Robinson among both academic and non-academic readers and promote new research into the poet's life and work.
