Analysis and comments on Why He Was There by Edwin Arlington Robinson

Comment 1 of 1, added on February 18th, 2011 at 2:17 PM.
Why He Was There

This person became so much a part of his surroundings that he remains there
in the memory of his friends or family. Their memories are his continued
existance in that place. When they are gone, so is he.
