Today is the birthday of Edna St. Vincent Millay. My friend Caryl, an English major, introduced me to St. Vincent Millay when we were sophomores in college. I'm not a big fan of poetry but there is something about St. Vincent Millay's poems that strike a nerve with me. Now, as then, I am attracted to her bohemian lifestyle. She was the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
