Edna St. Vincent Millay - Selected Poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay, 162 pages, read by Janet, on 04/23/2013

Edna St. Vincent millay was a very intellectual, sophisticated poet whose work involves a bit more deep thinking than most work I have been reading lately.  She projects unhappiness in many of her poems, perhaps from her feminist or political unrest with society, or her decline in health in later years.  She has been described as “a militantly political feminist” yet is able to present love as a passionate surrender in some poEdna St. Vincent Millayems.  Her poems asre not fast reading, but give much feeling and information as digested.
