Birthday anniversary …

… Beyond Walden Pond: Edna St. Vincent Millay: remembering her birthday and pondering her place in the history of literature.

Millay entered Vassar in 1913 at the age of 20. She was petite, with flaming red-hair and personality to burn. She had affairs with men and women, and wrote, “People fall in love with me and annoy me and distress me and flatter me and excite me.”
