Overview

One of America’s most beloved poets, Edna St. Vincent Millay burst onto the literary scene at a very young age and won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1923. Her passionate lyrics and superbly crafted sonnets have thrilled generations of readers long after the notoriously bohemian lifestyle she led in Greenwich Village in the 1920s ceased to shock them. Millay’s refreshing frankness and cynicism and her ardent appetite for life still burn brightly on the page more than half a century after her death.

This volume includes the early poems that many consider her best— “Renascence” and “The Ballad of the Harp Weaver” among them—as well as such often-memorized favorites as “What lips my lips have kissed” and “First Fig” (“My candle burns at both ends . . .”). The poet’s most famous verse drama, the one-act antiwar fable Aria da Capo, is included here as well.

    Terribly coded

    Great poetry, ruined by awful ebook coding that doesn't account properly for line breaks and turns "st" into carrot marks, among other issues. Don't waste your time with this.

    This is a mess

    This does not contain most of the things it claims to. In addition it is formated so poorly that what little is does have is a headache to use. It's a waste of time but at least it's free.
