Edna St. Vincent Millay: Twayne's United States Authors Series.
NY, Twayne Pubs, (1967). G in G DJ. Millay triumphs in descriptive poetry with a meticulous rendering of exquisitely exact details. In her love poetry she. she spoke for the emancipated woman of our times. With roots in traditions of American Transcendentalism, she developed attitudes typical of 20th century liberalism, truht of heart, freedom of mind, integrity of soul. Her poetry of the 1920s shows her as a foremost advocate of feminism, hedonism and individalism. The mature Millay, disillusioned, was an agnostic, who accepted the coldness of an indifferent universe, yet who never ceeased hoping for the establishment of Christian values and a change in the human condition. Tanning and damp stain to edges of DJ, both endpapers are lightened.
