Robinson Jeffers

a.k.a. John Robinson Jeffers

Author Code: AJRJ

Born: Jan. 10, 1887 - Alleghany, Pennsylvania, USA

Died: Jan. 20, 1962 - Carmel, California, USA

Educated at Occidental College and the University of Southern California, Jeffers was a gifted child with an avid interest in literature and the classics. After studying medicine at USC, he entered the University of Washington as a forestry student, but left after only one year. In 1912, his first book of poems, Flagons and Apples, was published. In 1913, he married Una Call Kuster and they settled near Carmel, California. Jeffers was extremely popular during the 1920's and 1930's and his success and financial independence allowed him to build 'Tor House', a structure that reflected his love of stone masonry and one which was continually added to well into the 1960's. Much of Jeffers' work was of the epic poem format reminiscent of the classical authors he loved so much. Jeffers' popularity began to decline when he voiced his disapproval of the United States entering World War II. Today, he is recognized by many as one of the most important American poets of the 20th century. His works include California (1916), Tamar and Other Poems (1924), Roan Stallion, Tamar and Other Poems (1925), The Women at Sur Point (1927), Cawdor and Other Poems (1928), Thurso's Landing and Other Poems (1932), Be Angr At the Sun (1941), Medea (1946), The Double Axe and Other Poems (1948) and Hungerfield and Other Poems (1954).
