Robinson rues so


Poet Edward Arlington Robinson died on this day in 1935. He is the poet who wrote this surprise ending to one of his poems:

"And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head
."

Robinson also once wrote:

"There is a good deal to live for, but a man has to go through hell really to find it out."
