Robin Matthews
author of Another Spring collected poems

Robin Matthews grew up in rural New Jersey. Trained as a printing press operator, he was drafted into the U.S. Army during the Viet Nam War. Following his discharge, he moved to Manhattan and co-founded the poetry magazine Sanskaras with Ronald Hobbs. Matthews left the east coast and mainstream America in 1970 to start a family and pursue an alternative lifestyle in New Mexico. During this period, his poetry and prose were published in several, mainly underground, publications. After returning to work and residence in the southeast, he took a long hiatus from poetry. Now retired, Matthews has resumed his writing. His collection, Another Spring, begins with recently penned reflections and reminiscences of a lifetime. They bridge the leap back to the author's work of the 1970s, from which the poems continue to move back in time, the way the mind does naturally in memory. The result is an evocative portrait of the 60s and 70s, against which one man's interactions with nature and society are traced in a spare yet lyrical style.
