Riassunto: A collection of latter-day sonnets depicting the author's life as a lover and a newspaperman. The style is sometimes wry, sometimes lyrical; the tone ranges from comic to romantic to melancholy. The poems contain lovely echoes of John Berryman, Catullus, and Sappho, as well as the 17th Century Metaphysical poets. They are sometimes written in the voice of a persona.
L'autore: Kenton Wing Robinson takes his middle name from his grandmother's maiden name, as it was she who raised him, taught him to read and, when he was still a boy, introduced him to Thomas Carew, her favorite metaphysical poet. He has written poetry since he was nine years old, and he achieved his first recognition as a writer in the eighth grade, when his English teacher intercepted a poem alleging she had sex with hippopotami. He has written reams of poetry since, most of which have been stuffed into drawers to gather dust. Always a bridesmaid, Robinson has seen three of his collections Common Bird Songs, The Execution Club and What It s Made Of be finalists or honorable mentions in various contests. His poems have been published in AGNI, The Worcester Review, The Litchfield Review and a number of other magazines. An award-winning reporter and columnist at The Day in New London, Connecticut, Robinson has been a newsman for most of his life.
