Summary

The comprehensive collection detailing the career of a twentieth-century master In her prolific six-decade career, May Sarton was as at home crafting a novel as she was writing a memoir. However, it was in poetry that Sarton’s feelings were laid bare. She was a writer of immense creativity and strength, and created a back catalog of poetry that could rival those of any of her contemporaries.   In Selected Poems of May Sarton, a collection from her first forty years of writing, many of the author’s classic themes are on display: There are her meditations on solitude, featuring the breathtaking “Gestalt at Sixty”; there is her beautifully written tribute to literature in “My Sisters, O My Sisters”; and there is a rumination on affairs of the heart in an excerpt from the sonnet collection “A Divorce of Lovers.”   Sarton was a true literary force, with the ability to speak to readers of all genders, persuasions, and ages, and Selected Poems of May Sarton demonstrates that power perfectly.

    The darkness that fills him...the pain...they call to me. 
    I see so much more than his crime, his past, his demons. 
    I see the promise...the man who fills all the empty spaces inside me. 
    I’m not the perfect, untouchable girl he thinks I am. I’m just dirty enough to take what I want. 
    Him. 
    ~ 
    I could never deserve her. 
    She is the light...the sun, the moon, a billion stars. 
    She gives me hope. 
    But hope is a dangerous thing for a criminal like me. 
    I am hopeless. 
    Infinitely flawed. 
    Tainted. 
    We are more than opposites. 
    We are the dangerously perfect collision of dark and light and pain.
