Edwin Arlington Robinson?s (1869-1935) most popular poems consistently
appear in numerous American poetry anthologies and high school
textbooks, his Collected Poems are carried by ?big box? bookstores, and
one of his poems was even the subject of the Simon and Garfunkel song
?Richard Cory.? Scott Donaldson?s forthcoming biography demonstrates
that Robinson remains a figure of literary interest. However, the
scarcity of recent critical work is remarkable; Donaldson?s biography
is the first in more than sixty years. So why does Robinson?s poetry
encourage so little critical attention if he was and is still a public,
published poet? This proposed ALA panel is soliciting 400-600 word

ABSTRACTS DUE 1/22/07

A recent article in London's Financial Times (FT) warned its
market-minded readers that the "plight of La Paz provides an
illustration of how a city's unchecked growth can threaten
stability."* The article went on to detail how El Alto, a "slum" city
of 1 million located on a plateau above the Bolivian capital, disrupts
business as usual not just with by now familiar complaints of
"pot-holed roads, belching minibuses, street vendors and packs of
stray dogs," but the radical spatial praxis of its inhabitants.
