pleonidasp: SHINE, REPUBLIC Robinson Jeffers (1935) The quality of these trees, green height; of the sky, shining, of water, a clear flow; of the rock, hardness And reticence: each is noble in its quality. The love of freedom has been the quality of Western man.

ThomasPfau3: Intrigued to begin exploring the poetry of Robinson Jeffers and, at least imaginatively, allow myself to be drawn into the mystique of solitary life in Carmel, CA during the 1920s and '30s, when the stark, as yet unspoiled beauty of the place must have been overwhelming.

BDSixsmith: On the other hand, his response to my saying "poetry redeems us all" strips out the "there's a sense in which" that precedes it to make it sound more sunnily romantic than it is. Saying a piece that quotes Robinson Jeffers only seeks to flatter suburbians is also ridiculous.
