Savage beauty : the life of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Nancy Milford ( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 3,112 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 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
a"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," writes Nancy Milford in the Introduction to The Selected Poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay Edited by Millay biographer Nancy Milford, The Selected Poetry of Edna St. Vincent Millay, as well as "The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver" and eight of Millay's sonnets from the early twenties
Christopher Wilmarth : light and gravity by Steven Henry Madoff ( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 376 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."--BOOK JACKET

Zelda [a biography] by Nancy Milford ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 12 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

With her cohort, Georgie Pillson, and her husband Peppino, she upends the greats of high society

Savage beauty the life of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Nancy Milford ( Recording )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[This book] is an intimate look at a complex, charismatic, imperfect woman, someone who evokes both admiration and sympathy. Among the less glamorous revelations are the sometimes damaging intertwining of the poet's life with that of her mother and two sisters, Millay's promiscuity and uncanny seductiveness, and the dynamics of her 27-year marriage to a man who adored and promoted her while enabling her infidelities and addictions. [This book] is a testimonial to her scholarship, stamina, and commitment to her craft.-http://www.amazon.com
