Collected Poems
by Edna St Vincent Millay




Overview -
My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -- It gives a lovely light
"First Fig" from A Few Figs from Thistles (1920)

The 1956 Collected Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay finds new life in this beautiful edition from Harper Perennial Modern Classics. Alongside Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, Marianne Moore, and E. E. Cummings, Millay remains among the most celebrated poets of the early twentieth century for her uniquely lyrical explorations of love, individuality, and artistic expression. This invaluable compendium of her work is not only an essential addition to any collection of the world's most moving and memorable poetry but an unprecedented look into the life of Millay. An extensive P.S. section includes personal letters, never-before-seen photographs, information about Millay's homestead at Steepletop, and an original essay by leading Millay scholar Holly Peppe.
