Review quote

"One of the only poets writing in English in our time who have attained anything like the stature of great literary figures."-- Edmund Wilson"I know that Millay is a good poet because there are so many of her lines in my memory. She belonged to a generation which thought of poetry as song; when that notion revives, as it will, the great appeal of her work will be felt again."-- Richard Wilbur"She wrote some of the best sonnets of the century."-- Richard Eberhart"There are some who delight and inform. It's so much better, you see, for me, when a writer like Edna St. Vincent Millay speaks so deeply about her concern for herself, and does not offer us any altruisms. Then when I look through her eyes at how she sees a black or an Asian my heart is lightened."-- Maya Angelou
