of Vincent Millay s genius and took it on himself to be her almost Selected Poems perfect husband as the caption under hisicture reads in the book He supported her and coddled her but exactly how Vincent treated him on a day to day basis remains a bit of a mystery to me not through any lack of Milford s but because the focus in their life was so Fourth-Grade Fuss primarily on Vincent and her writing that little was spoken of how she treated Eugen outside of expecting him to support her writing completely including taking on most of the household duties andutting up with an extended and serious love affair she had with a Dinah Jefferies 3-Book Collection poetThe brightest burn in this lifeline is during this Jazz Age where Millay mingledlayed and loved with many of the most The

revolutions around this extraordinary womanMillay s life winds tighter and at an increasingly melancholy note from thisoint on I found the ending very difficult to read Millay and her husband settle into their beautiful home Steepletop and there is much heartbreak estrangement an evocative feel that Milford creates reminding me of an old Hydra person wandering and the harrowing descent of Vincent into drug abuse Her medical condition or conditions remain a mystery Milford guesses at the truth but is not as assured here as otherlaces in the story Reading what documented evidence there is I was myself ersuaded that Millay had two afflictions hysical and spiritual both which contributed to her addiction Millay was afraid of getting old as we all are to some degree but for her I believe it was the snuffing of a candle that had been her main source of light for her entire adulthood She herself sobs to a friend at one Lilac Bus/Dublin 4 point that she cannot write is not beautiful no one wants her any and is much cheered up when he assures her this is not trueTheictures twice enclosed in the middle of this large book are fantastic I referred to them over and over reading the biography wondering at the details they revealed Milford closes the The Four Books picture section with aicture of Norma Millay in her later years reclining against a fence cigarette in hand looking entirely iconoclastic and defiant as well as slightly mischevious She seems a fascinating character in her own rightAgain it is Milford s amazing Changing Times persistencesychological compassions and tender
