dc.description.abstractAlthough largely ignored by Jeffers scholars, the old man’s double axe cuts quite a figure in Robinson Jeffers’s long narrative poem "The Inhumanist". In both its symbolic and dramatic roles, the double-bit axe elucidates the central components of Jeffers’s mature metaphysical and spiritual worldview. In addition to its role as a metaphysical symbol, the double axe also functions as an emblem of Jeffers’s poetry,one that articulates his underlying concerns and enduring aspirations for his work.
