Poets Weave

Love poems by Edna St. Vincent Millay

On this edition of The Poets Weave, host Christopher Citro reads love poems from Edna St. Vincent Millay's 1920 A Few Figs from Thistles.

Born in 1892, poet and playwright Edna St. Vincent Millay personified the life of a liberated, bohemian poet in Greenwich Village in the 1920s.  One of the foremost writers of sonnets in her day, she was the first woman to win the Pulitzer prize for poetry, for her 1923 volume The Harp Weaver and Other Poems. Millay died in 1950.  On this edition of The Poets Weave, in honor of Valentine’s Day, host Christopher Citro reads love poems from Millay’s 1920 A Few Figs from Thistles.
