In finely crafted lyrics and sonnets, Edna St. Vincent Millay gave voice to her generation's claim to personal freedome and earned a reputation as a sexually liberated free-thinker. But her subject matter varries widely--from meditations on nature, love, life, loss, death, and the reincarnation of the human soul to commentaries on politics and discrimination against women--and reveals poetic influences from the classical to the classical to the romantic. This volume comprises of Millay's first three books: "Renascence," "A Few Figs from Thistles," and "Second April." Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Holly Peppe. 1998 paperback, 174 pages.
