Robinson & Una Jeffers – “Our Inevitable Place”

“When the stagecoach topped the hill,” Robinson Jeffers wrote in 1914, “and we looked down through pines and sea fogs on Carmel Bay, it was evident that we had come without knowing it to our inevitable place.”

That “inevitable place” and their life there will be the subject of a talk by Elliot Ruchowitz-Roberts, Vice President of the Robinson Jeffers Tor House Foundation. Discover what fueled the timeless poetry of Robinson Jeffers and how his writing was reflective of the home he built, including the iconic forty-foot tall Hawk Tower.
