Several authors have treated Robinson’s failures as failures, but they have failed to show that behind every failure is a gleam of light; that these poor specimens of humanity have some sort of a place in the world. My investigation has been primarily to illustrate this point, which I feel, could more readers realize, would put a more popular demand upon Robinson’s poems, especially at the present day when financial achievements are somewhat at a standstill.
