Thomas Hardy once said that America had two great attractions: the skyscraper and the poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay. The most famous poet of the jazz age, the petite Millay captivated the nation. She smoked in public, took many lovers (men, women, single, married), flouted convention sensationally and became the embodiment of the New Woman. She was a true spellbinding original. Paperback with full index and footnotes. 550 pgs.
