"One of the only poets writing in English in our time who have attained anything like the stature of great literary figures."--Edmund WilsonA
From the Back Cover
More than 180 sonnets selected from Millay's books of poems-- including 20 sonnets from "Mine the Harvest" not contained in previous editions of her "Collected Sonnets"-- are brought together in this new, expanded edition.
An introduction by Norma Millay, written expressly for this volume, focuses on examples of the poet's variations in sonnet structure. Here is the voice of Millay, whose prophetic vision, devotion to freedom, and intellectual daring combine with her mastery of the sonnet form to speak eloquently for the human spirit.

I think that Edna St. Vincent Millay is one of the best poets ever, male or female, of any time period. So of course it would follow that I think this book is great, too.
Treat your senses to her wonderful lyrics and you will see what I mean. The sonnet form is a strict one, one that few poets master yet M's Millay makes it work so wonderfully for her.
There are love sonnets, of course - but there are just as many that have nothing to do with love. All of these sonnets are great, of course I have my favorites - read throught the book and you'll probably have your own picks, too.
