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 29 masterworks, including works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Andrew Dasburg, and Alfred Stieglitz, from the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe.
