About the Author
Edna St. Vincent Millay was born in 1892 in Rockland, Maine, and grew up in the seaside town of Camden. In 1923 Millay received the second annual Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. Millay published five more collections of poetry; a prose collection under her pen name, Nancy Boyd; a translation; two verse dramas; and several plays. She died in 1950.

J. D. McClatchy (1945-2018) was the author of many books of poetry and essays, including Plundered Hearts: New and Selected Poems (2014), and the editor of nine Library of America publications. He wrote the libretto for Ned Rorem's operatic version of Our Town, taught at Yale University, and served as editor of The Yale Review.

Reviews
"McClatchy has done yeoman's work with both selection and editing, and Library of America was right to inaugurate its American Poets Project with Edna St. Vincent Millay. Fashions in literature, like those in couture, keep coming back, as she, if she hasn't already, surely will." --John Simon, The New Criterion
