(Poets and Poetry in America)

Though a prolific poet, Robert Hillyer (HIH-lee-yur) published works in many other genres that were held in high esteem by academics. His publications include essays, translations, lyrics, criticism, book reviews, fiction, letters, lectures, and critical introductions to various anthologies. Accessibility remains the hallmark of both his art and academic writing, which is worth noting during a time when most writing, especially poetry, reflected the confusion of a violent era.
