Robert Greer Cohn

Robert%20Cohn-low.jpgRobert Greer Cohn is best known for his lifetime work on Mallarmé. Michael Deguy referred to him as the "posthumous Mallarmé." Julia Kristeva, in an article subtitled "Hommage à R. G. Cohn" called him "Mallarmé's accomplice." Many major writers echoed these sentiments: Herman Broch, Giuseppe Ungaretti, Richard Wilbur, Philippe Sollers... His The Poetry of Rimbaud was deemed by Henri Peyre to be "perhaps the best study [of the poet] in any language." He was the founding editor of Yale French Studies and the author of sixteen books, a two-time Guggenheim fellow; he is professor emeritus of French at Stanford University.
