Poetic Obituaries: [Robert K.] Martin was a professor

in the English Lit department at Concordia University in Montreal from 1967 to 1992. He was well-known in academic circles for his groundbreaking 1979 book, The Homosexual Tradition in American Poetry. Noted author Leslie Fiedler praised the book at the time as "the first full-fledged attempt by a gay critic to put the gay writers of the American past into proper perspective."
