Summary

Three celebrated volumes of verse from a feminist icon, poet, and author of the groundbreaking novel Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing.  Letters from Maine: A rugged coastline provides a stark background for Sarton’s images of a tragically brief love. With vulnerability and emotional depth, she explores the willingness to devote everything to a new love, as well as the despair at the memory of what is left over when it fades.  Inner Landscape: This collection of May Sarton’s poems displays her inimitable mix of stately verse and depth of feeling that lurks beneath every line, creating a tantalizing, magnetically charged distance between reader and poet.  Halfway to Silence: After decades of writing flowing lyric verse, May Sarton’s style turned to short, vibrant bursts of poetry. These condensed poems are rife with exuberant impressions of nature and of love, including two of her most acclaimed works, “Old Lovers at the Ballet” and “Of the Muse.”   Recognized as a true pioneer in lesbian literature, “Sarton’s poems enter and illuminate every natural corner of our lives. . . . So strong in their faith and in their positive response to the human condition that they will outlast much of the fashionable, cynical poetry of our ear” (James Martin).

    The acclaimed author of The Miracle “brings to life the bliss and treachery of the Italian Renaissance” in this novel of beauty and betrayal (David Henry Hwang).   In fifteenth-century Florence, young and beautiful Agnolo does whatever he must to survive. When he isn’t living with a soldier, he provides company for lonely men. But when his soldier is sent to war, Agnolo finds work as a model for the great artist Donato di Betto Bardi—otherwise known as Donatello.   While creating his famous bronze of David standing on the head of Goliath, Donatello develops a desire for Agnolo that ignites a dangerous jealousy. The artist’s assistant, the complex and conflicted Luca, is determined to save Donatello and put an end to the cattivo Agnolo.   With incisive detail, John L’Heureux beautifully renders the master sculptor’s creative genius, and the artistry that enthralled the powerful and highly competitive Medici and Albizzi families, in a novel of Renaissance Italy that is a “pleasure to read” (The Washington Post).   “A gripping story of love, genius, and betrayal.” —J. M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize–winning author   “A novel bursting with love—collegial, artistic, and erotic . . . [and] prose as passionate as his characters.” —David Henry Hwang, author of M. Butterfly
