Michael Robbins, professor in the English Department, will have his third poetry collection, Walkman, published by Penguin Books in June 2021 under the Penguin Poets imprint. Professor Robbins’s first two collections, Alien vs. Predator and The Second Sex, were each published to widespread acclaim.
The New York Times has praised Robbins’s poetry for its “sky-blue originality of utterance” and N+1 has described his work as having “perfect a style at once immediately recognizable, socially resonant, and impossible to imitate.” Professor Robinson has published poems and essays in such notable periodicals as The New Yorker, Poetry, The Paris Review, and The Nation as well as a book of essays, Equipment for Living: On Poetry and Pop Music.
