  • This is one of my all-time favorite poets. All of her poetry is wonderful and this has been such a joy I know I will read it again and again.

  • First Fig was wonder, I love Mrs Millay' s writing, it just rock my world reaching out from almost 100 years ago to touch my heart. And is still as relevant today as it was then. From First and Second Fig to her last
    Last poem she rocks.

  • Do love Edna!

  • I have been a fan of her writing since I was a teenager. I love re-reading my favorites. They are always new in some way

  • GREAT!

  • I LOVE Edna St. Vincent Millay!!!

  • Lovely book.

  • Poetry is personal. One person's 5-star rating may be another 1-star. I give First Fig a 4 because most of the poems were meaningful, and the fact that they are formal and rhyming is a bonus. St. Vincent Millay's work is understandable and direct. I find many contemporary poets to be quite the opposite, just one of the reasons I enjoy, and will continue to enjoy, her work.
