What lips my lips have kissed : the loves and love poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Daniel Mark Epstein( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 1,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of a rare sort of American genius, a young girl from Camden, Maine, who used her pen as a key to open doors to the wider world. Raised in a female, theatrics-loving household, the sensitive child harbored a talent for words, music, and drama and an inexorable desire to be loved. When Edna St. Vincent Millay was twenty, her poetry would make her famous; at thirty she would be loved by readers the world over." "She was widely considered to be the most seductive woman of her age. Few men could resist her, and many women also fell under her spell. From the publication of her first poems until the scandal over Fatal Interview twenty years later, gossip about the poet's liberated lifestyle prompted speculation about who might be the real subject of her verses." "With a poet's insight, Daniel Mark Epstein re-creates the events and ideas that led to Millay's precocious masterpiece "Renascence," published when she was just nineteen. His detective work exposes the affair between the young poet and the middle-aged editor Arthur Hooley, who encouraged her sexual adventures at Vassar. Epstein has also discovered love letters from the poet George Dillon illuminating the romance that threatened Millay's marriage, and a cache of correspondence concerning the poet's surprising obsession and success with thoroughbred horse racing."--Jacket

The poems in Daniel Mark Epstein's eighth poetry collection range from the kind of solid and accomplished works for which he is known to astonishing pieces that are near-spiritual encounters. Always an assured poet, Epstein employs inventive rhythms to remarkable effect in these new poems, and it often seems as if the reader is not so much reading the poems as remembering them. And with the discovery each poem brings, there is a "shock of recognition," as though these elusive yet essential ideas have been present all along. The Glass House is an amazing book-wonderful in its evocations of natu
