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 works: the long narratives of “this coast crying out for tragedy,” the shorter meditative lyrics and dramas on classical themes, and the critically acclaimed adaptation of Medea for the Broadway stage. The Tor House Foundation offers docent-led tours, curates a performance and reading series, and sponsors an annual Robinson Jeffers Poetry Prize.
