Avon's Harvest

Edwin Arlington Robinson

"In ""Avon's Harvest,"" Edwin Arlington Robinson devotes the majority of the book to one long narrative poem of the same title, which tells the story of how a man's life was destroyed by the slow canker of an unreasoning hatred he formed as a young man, and of a sudden act of violence that flared out of it. Robinson's wields his sparse, simple, yet brilliantly polished verse like a scalpel, dissecting layer after layer of Avon's mind until the whole is laid bare as if on an operating table. The rest of the book includings a number of short poems, most particularly the famous ""Mr. Flood's Party,"" in which an old man's courage, fortified with liquor, suffices to get him home yet one more night.
