Savage beauty : the life of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Nancy Milford( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 3,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If F. Scott Fitzgerald was the hero of the Jazz Age, Edna St. Vincent Millay, as audacious in her love affairs as she was in her art, was its heroine. She embodied, in her reckless fancy, the spirit of the New Woman, and gave America its voice." "The first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, Millay was dazzling in the performance of her self. Her voice was an instrument of seduction, and her impact on crowds, and on men, was legendary. Young women styled themselves in her image - fairylike, taunting, free. Yet beneath her studied act, all was not well." "Nancy Milford was given exclusive access to Millay's papers, and what she found was an unimaginable treasure. Hundreds of letters flew back and forth between the three sisters and their mother - and Millay kept the most intimate diary, one whose ruthless honesty brings to mind the journals of Sylvia Plath."--Jacket
The selected poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Edna St. Vincent Millay( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of America's most celebrated poets--and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1923--Edna St. Vincent Millay defined a generation with her passionate lyrics and intoxicating voice of liberation. Edited by Millay biographer Nancy Milford, this Modern Library Paperback Classics collection captures the poet's unique spirit in works like "Renascence and Other Poems", "A Few Figs from This-tles", and "Second April", as well as in "The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver" and eight sonnets from the early twenties. As Milford writes in her Introduction, "These are the poems that made Edna St. Vincent Millay's reputation when she was young. Saucy, insolent, flip, and defiant, her little verses sting the page."
Christopher Wilmarth : light and gravity by Steven Henry Madoff( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christopher Wilmarth delighted the world with light-filled sculptures of glass and steel that were poetic in their moods and rich in their modernist heritage. But in 1987, at the peak of his career, a long struggle with depression ended tragically for Wilmarth. The internationally acclaimed artist committed suicide at age forty-four, and his work largely fell from the public view." "Now, Wilmarth's legacy is recaptured in this illustrated book by art critic, historian, and poet Steven Henry Madoff. The first in-depth look at Wilmarth's extraordinary life as an artist, the book explores both the light and the darkness that underlie his work. Madoff offers a critical overview of the artist's career, examining the sculptor's response not only to historical masters such as Cezanne, Brancusi, Matisse, and Giacometti, but also to the art world of his times - particularly the dominant influence of Minimalism. Using the newly created Wilmarth archive at Harvard University's Fogg Art Museum, Madoff anchors this moving interpretation with the sculptor's own writings unearthed from journals, student notebooks, artist sketchbooks, and letters." "Madoff draws as well from interviews, articles, and poems that Wilmarth published in his lifetime, along with the body of criticism covering Wilmarth's development over the years."--Jacket
Zelda by Nancy Milford( Recording )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1994 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zelda Sayre began as a Southern beauty, became an international wonder, and died by fire in a madhouse. Witty, indulged, and capricious, Zelda thoroughly enjoyed exercising the prerogatives of a Southern belle. When she married F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1920, her lifestyle seemed the natural extension of her Montgomery, Alabama upbringing. She and Scott were the epitome of the Jazz Age, and they rode the crest of the era to its collapse--and their own. From years of exhaustive research, Nancy Milford brings alive the tormented, elusive personality of Zelda and clarifies as never before her relationship with Scott Fitzgerald. Zelda traces the inner disintegration of a gifted, despairing woman, torn by the clash between her husband's career and her own talent
