MILLAY IN GREENWICH VILLAGE., Cheney, Anne.

Author Name    Cheney, Anne.

Title   MILLAY IN GREENWICH VILLAGE.

Publisher    University of Alabama Press, Alabama, 1975.

Seller ID   20234

160 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0817371613 B&w illustrations. "It was Millay who captured in verse the freedom, spontaneity, quick wit, and beauty of the pre-1920s as no other poet did. She was a living symbol of the 'new woman' who could live, think, and love as freely as they chose. (This) is a psychological portrait of Millay in her finest years, the ones after she had freed herself of the repression of her childhood and youth and before she accepted th e b o n d s o f a stifling marriage. The four most important influences on Millay's life and art - Floyd Dell, Edmund Wilson, Arthur Davison Ficke, and Eugen Boissevain - are discussed at length in individual chapters. A separate chapter deals b ri e fl y wi th h e r less significant relationships. Dr. Cheney's fascinating study reveals that Millay's concern with and involvement in anti-war protests, women's rights, social injustice, lesbianism, and individual freedom make her not only a rep re sen ta tiv e w oma n of her own time, but very much a woman for our time, too." Faint cigarette odor, minor browning to pages, light wear at top/bottom of spine and at corners, light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very light browning to fore -edg e a nd t op of t extb lock . Du st jacket has a few tiny chips, one very small tear archivally taped, light browning on spine and flap-folds and edges of panels, light rubbing, minor soiling. Very good-/Very Good-
