Synopses & Reviews
In a career spanning sixty years, May Sarton has been heard and acclaimed by an ever-growing number of readers. With sensitivity, insight, and bravery, she speaks for the unmarried woman, the woman artist, the aging woman; but in her exploration of life's hard decisions, its poignancies and joys, she speaks for everyone.
Her work ranges from passionately honest diaries like Journal of a Solitude and novels with memorable characters like As We Are Now to superbly crafted lyrical poems and evocative descriptions of nature in poetry and prose.
Here for the first time is an anthology of the best of May Sarton's novels, journals, and poetry. The editor, Bradford Dudley Daziel, is chairman of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Westbrook College in Portland, Maine.
