Synopses & Reviews
The poems in this first selection from her whole work were written over a period of forty years. They convey a wonderfully energetic alternation of mood, idea, and experience that are part of her unique creative process.
The steady growth of May Sarton's following and critical importance in recent years has revealed a creative writer of remarkable scope--equally at home in three literary forms: fiction, autobiography, and poetry. It is in her poetry, however, where she achieves the full extent of her revelation as artist and human.
