Edwin Arlington Robinson is generally acknowledged to be particularly the "poet of failures". His poems deal preeminently with the problems of men and women who err through their various limitations, and who usually err tragically. Since this is true, it is necessary to survey briefly, and attempt to classify, the materials from which the analyses for this study will be drawn. Such a survey will follow immediately in a subsequent chapter.
