One of America's most celebrated poets--and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1923--Edna St. Vincent Millay defined a generation with her passionate lyrics and intoxicating voice of liberation. Edited by Millay biographer Nancy Milford, this Modern Library Paperback Classics collection captures the poet's unique spirit in works like Renascence and Other Poems , A Few Figs from This-tles , and Second April , as well as in "The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver" and eight sonnets from the early twenties. As Milford writes in her Introduction, "These are the poems that made Edna St. Vincent Millay's reputation when she was young. Saucy, insolent, flip, and defiant, her little verses sting the page."

Finally a poet I can embrace!
I liked her poems whenever I came across them although this is the first book of poems I have ever checked out and I am so glad I did. I like poetry after all I realized, some of which actually rhymes!
