Collection Overview

Biography / History
Elizabeth Madox Roberts (1881-1941) was born in Perryville, Kentucky and raised in Springfield. She enrolled at the State College of Kentucky (now the University of Kentucky) but her chronic respiratory illnesses lead to her withdrawal before the end of her first semester. Roberts worked as an elementary school teacher in Springfield, Kentucky, until her relocation to Colorado in 1910. It was here Roberts published her first volume of poetry. In 1916, she was accepted to the State College of Kentucky but never enrolled, instead choosing to study writing at University of Chicago. Roberts published verse in both Poetry and Atlantic Monthly after graduation. In 1926, her poetry collection The Time of Man was published to international acclaim. Roberts would go on to publish seven more collections and novels before her declining health caused her to lapse into a coma in 1937. She died at her Orlando, Florida, home in 1941 and was buried in Springfield, Kentucky.
