When i was a child essay

She describes poetry as "a highly respectable use of solitude", the writings of Edgar Allan Poe have an "almost hallucinatory loneliness", and, she reveals – wonderful detail – that, in Iowa, the word "lonesome" has positive connotations. Yet what makes this book is Robinson's belief in community, her feeling that "it is in the nature of people to do good to one another" (as well as to sin), and that the world is, to quote Louis MacNeice, " incorrigibly plural " (even if, for her, it has only one God). Robinson is adept at studying the small print and reading between the lines but she never forgets to look up at the stars.
