Read full description of the books Renascence and Other Poems:Millay is one of those poets I think oh sure, I've read, but then realized I really hadn't. This set of poems is some of her earliest work, and is stunning and incredible. Sometimes you have to give a poem a bit, look past the rhyming and look at the meaning. Other times it's not an effort at all. My favorites are the title poem and the six sonnets.
The most familiar poem in this volume is probably the one that starts:
"O world, I cannot hold thee close enough!"
Sound familiar? Good, now read the rest.
Happy National Poetry Month!
