The comprehensive collection detailing the career of a twentieth-century master In her prolific six-decade career, May Sarton was as at home crafting a novel as she was writing a memoir. However, it was in poetry that Sarton's feelings were laid bare. She was a writer of immense creativity and strength, and created a back catalog of poetry that could rival those of any of her contemporaries. In Selected Poems of May Sarton, a collection from her first forty years of writing, many of the author's classic themes are on display: There are her meditations on solitude, featuring the breathtaking "Gestalt at Sixty"; there is her beautifully written tribute to literature in "My Sisters, O My Sisters"; and there is a rumination on affairs of the heart in an excerpt from the sonnet collection "A Divorce of Lovers." Sarton was a true literary force, with the ability to speak to readers of all genders, persuasions, and ages, and Selected Poems of May Sarton demonstrates that power perfectly.
