9780486436722: Early Poems (Dover Thrift Editions)

One of the most successful poets in America and a fascinating literary figure of the early twentieth century, Edna St. Vincent Millay found her voice in a national poetry contest at the age of twenty. Her poems received critical praise and became the first step toward receiving the Pulitzer Award years later. An acclaimed poet of the Jazz Age, this liberated, often rebellious, woman enchanted us with her beautiful sonnets and lyrics, even as she surprised us with her unconventional personal life. This vibrant volume includes the complete selection of poems from Millay's first three books. Each gem reflects a different facet of the author's versatility.
Renascence and Other Poems was Millay's first collection of poetry, a literary sensation when it was published in 1912. Acclaimed by critics for its remarkable use of compelling language and imagery, it is a deeply personal work that reflects the poet's spiritual awakening, using the themes of death and resurrection. In contrast, the poetry in A Few Figs from Thistles represents a cynical stage, a time of rebellion, and a search for personal freedom, as depicted in her famous line, "My candle burns at both ends." Part beauty, part despair, the free verse and heartfelt sonnets of Second April are an expression of Millay's feelings about love and disillusionment. Eloquent, daring, and sometimes bittersweet, these masterful lyrics exemplify the best work of a complex, passionate, and gifted poet. Includes a selection from the Common Core State Standards Initiative: "Afternoon on a Hill."

About the Author:

Edna St. Vincent Millay found her voice in a national poetry contest at the age of 20. In 1912, she won a prize for Renascence, just the first of many poems to win critical acclaim. The most famous poet of the Jazz Age, her passionate lyrics center on themes of spiritual awakening, love and personal freedom. In 1923, she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her fourth volume of poems, The Harp Weaver.

Descripción Dover Publications Inc., United States, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. In finely crafted lyrics and sonnets, Edna St. Vincent Millay gave voice to her generation s claim to personal freedom and earned a reputation as a sexually liberated free-thinker. But her subject matter varies widely - from meditations on nature, love, life, loss, death, and the reincarnation of the human soul to commentaries on politics and discrimination against women - and reveals poetic influences from the classical to the romantic. Comprising Millay s first three books - Renascence (1917), A Few Figs from Thistles (1920; revised 1922), and Second April (1921) - this fully annotated volume presents the auspicious beginning of her career. As popular today as when the poet herself enraptured audiences, Millay s work is at last being appreciated for its beauty and depth as well as its impact on the American literary tradition.
