Джефферс Робинсон/ Jeffers Robinson (10 января 1887 – 20 января 1962) - американский поэт. These fragments are all I can remember, These in the flare of the desert evening

Джефферс Робинсон/ Jeffers Robinson (10 января 1887 – 20 января 1962) - американский поэт. True, the time, to one who does not love farce, And if misery must be prefers it nobler, shows apparent vices; At least it provides the cure for ambition. These fragments are all I can remember, These in the flare of the desert evening. Having been driven so brutally forth I never returned; Yet I respect him enough to keep his name and the place secret. I hope that some other traveller May stumble on that ravine of Titans after their maker has died.

John Robinson Jeffers (January 10, 1887 – January 20, 1962) was an American poet, known for his work about the central California coast. Much of Jeffers' poetry was written in narrative and epic form. However, he is also known for his shorter verse and is considered an icon of the environmental movement.

Robinson Jeffers also built a large 4-story stone tower on the site called Hawk Tower, based on similar structures . Robinson Jeffers: Selected poems.

Robinson Jeffers also built a large 4-story stone tower on the site called Hawk Tower, based on similar structures he had seen while traveling through Ireland. The romantic Gothic tower was named after a hawk that appeared while Jeffers was working on the structure, and which disappeared the day it was completed. The tower was a gift for his wife Una, who had a fascination for Irish literature and stone towers. New York: Vintage, 1965.

In 1948, Robinson Jeffers submitted the manuscript for 'The Double Axe and Other Poems' to Random House. During the months that followed, a controversy arose between Saxe Commins (his editor), Bennett Cerf (president of Random House), and the author, concerning the political nature of poetry. The end result was the deletion of 10 poems, the changing of several others, and the unusual situation of the publication of a book with a disclaimer from the publisher. What troubled Commins and Cerf about the manuscript was that it revealed so much of Jeffers' stark philosophy. In order to illustrate his idea that man is basically inhuman, the poet used well-known contemporaries in negative examples. Post-war America simply was not ready to accept Jeffers' belief that its own leaders were self-seeking and really no better than Hitler or Stalin.'In This Wild Water' is the story of 'The Double Axe.' In addition to chronicling the publication of the book, it includes the correspondence between Jeffers and Random House and offers a close look at each of the deleted poems (never before published) as well as the original versions of the altered poems. It also traces the development of Jeffers' philosophy of inhumanism, with a look at his early life and the events and circumstances that contributed to his ideas.

In retrospect, much of the noise generated by Jeffers' book was nonsensical. But it is an interesting example of what disturbance an apparently un-influential intellectual mind can create in influential circles.
In today's context, the style of the book is a little quaint and the level of investigative writing not too deep. This is not so important, the book sets out to do what was required at the time and so is part of the historical context of Jeffers, "The Double Axe", second World War politics and the rest. That it could have happened thus is a lesson to contemporary cynicism, to all sides.

The book is about Robinson Jeffers and dull and plodding from a conventional perspective on one of the best poets of the 20th century. Read his poems instead of this tripe. I rarely dispose of books but did not want anyone to get brain damage so this went in the trash.

This book is an old library book. Not what I expected.

It was after I got out of the Army... after Vietnam had found its surreal closure. I was living in Pacific Grove and wondering just what madness the nation might have gotten itself involved in next.
By happenchance, or serendipity I came into possession of "The Double Axe" by Robinson Jeffers. Here was a man, a great mind, that went to his grave an "isolationist", much like the wild, untamed country he lived in. He dared to speak out about the insanity of WWII and the horrendous loss of life.
His poems were haunting, but not like Wilfred Owen or Sasson. They spoke of lives being tossed away for nothing, wasted for a cause not worthy of their measure. Yes... they quietly slid these works into a corner of the literary world and tried to forget them.
Now I am no longer young... now another war whips up in my face and forces me to again think of wasted lives. It's easier this time, but the voice of "The Double Axe" and Jeffers' words ring true to me.
No... Jeffers isn't the easiest poet to figure out... his style can get wordy, clumpy. Let us make no mistake about this,though... conscience speaks loudly, and now is the time to again renew the conscience of Robinson Jeffers.
