Overview

Alice Corbin (1881-1949) was part of an inner circle of writers and artists on the national scene in the early twentieth century. Corbin lived and worked as a writer in Chicago prior to moving to New Mexico for health reasons. A graduate of the University of Chicago, Corbin was a frequent contributor to publications including the Chicago Tribune and the Saturday Evening Post and worked as assistant editor at Poetry: A Magazine of Verse (a publication still in existence). Corbin published several works of poetry in her lifetime. Red Earth: Poems of New Mexico, originally published in 1920 and long unavailable, was a radical book for its time, drawing on poetic techniques of Native American myths and Hispanic culture. This new edition includes a biographical sketch of Corbin's life and contributions to art and culture. It is illustrated with twenty-nine masterworks, including works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Andrew Dasburg, and Alfred Stieglitz, from the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe.
