Robinson Jeffers built Tor House and Hawk Tower as a home and refuge for himself and his family.  It was in Tor House that Jeffers wrote all of his major poetical works: the long narratives of "this coast crying out for tragedy," the shorter meditative lyrics and dramas on classical themes, culminating in 1947 with the critically acclaimed adaptation of Medea for the Broadway stage. The Tor House Foundation offers docent-led tours and curates a performance and reading series.
