"More than sixty years after her death, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay continues to captivate new generations of readers. This twentieth-century American's frank attitude toward sexuality - along with immortal lines such as "My candle burns at both ends"--Solidified her reputation as the quintessential liberated woman of the Jazz Age. In this authoritative volume, Timothy F. Jackson has compiled and annotated a new selection that represents the full range of Millay's published work alongside previously unpublished manuscript excerpts, poems, prose, and correspondence. The poems, appearing as they were printed in their first editions, are complemented by Jackson's extensive, illuminating notes, which draw on archival sources and help situate the poet's work in its historical and literary context. Two introductory essays - one by Jackson and the other by Millay's literary executor, Holly Peppe - also help critically frame the poet's work. This deluxe edition will be cherished by readers who continue to study and enjoy the work of this iconic figure."--Publisher's description.
