Wiki: Robert P. T. Coffin Wiki

Over the course of his literary career, Coffin worked diligently to refine a style that would be able to embrace both the breadth of his reading and the depth of his social and historical ties to his land of origin, its civilization, and its religion.

In 1934 Coffin accepted the Franklin Pierce professorship at Bowdoin, where he remained happily for the next three decades, teaching Shakespeare and poetry writing and issuing more than thirty books of verse, fiction, reminiscence, criticism, and regional description. In 1936 his book Strange Holiness won the Pulitzer Prize; Robert Frost spoke for him when the award was presented.  -30-
