Almost all of Edwin Arlington Robinson's poetry is divided metrically, into three types: blank verse, sonnets, and quatrains. The metrical analysis that follows is based on his blank verse. The real intent is to compare the earlier blank verses with the later, to analyze the relation between subject matter and form, and to note in general, the sources from which he gleaned his figures of speech. The following analysis is based on a study of some 13,000 lines of his blank verse.
