Mine the Harvest by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Copyright 1954

This is a posthumously published book of poems Millay was working on at the time of her death. It contains more free verse than one usually finds in a book of Millay’s poetry, though there are still many poems in rhymed forms. There is plenty of pleasure to be gotten between the covers of this book, but I wouldn’t call it Millay’s best work. This library has two other books by Millay. If this one ever goes ten years without attention, which it has already done at one time in the past, I suggest letting it go.
