About the Author:
Robert P. Arthur is becoming known as one of the more versatile writers in American letters. He has won awards for novels, short stories, poetry books, poetry, plays, poem-plays, feature stories, criticism, reviews, and journalism generally. He is a President Emeritus of the Poetry Society of Virginia, a former Writer in low Residence in poetry and playwriting in the graduate Creative Writing program at Wilkes University, and has twice been a runner-up for Poet Laureate of Virginia. His Collected works of poetry will be released in 2020, and many of his early plays will be re-released 2020-21. Arthur became internationally known in 1993 with the publication and dramatization of his poem book. “Hymn to the Chesapeake.” Widely known as an important poet of the bay, which he calls his home, in “Master William and the Finman” he exhibits his expertise in sea craft, and in the oceans of the world, as well as, once again, his usual poetic gift for blowing aching beauty into language. He lives with his wife, Gray, in Virginia Beach, about forty minutes from their bay-side cottage on the Eastern Shore peninsula.
