from THE POET AND HIS BOOK
Stranger, pause and look;
From the dust of ages
Lift this little book,
Turn the tattered pages,
Read me, do not let me die!
Search the fading letters, finding,
Steadfast in the broken binding
All that once was I!
~Edna St. Vincent Millay
I have long been beguiled by the work of Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and her life story so fascinated me that she is the subject of my most recent novel, FALLEN BEAUTY. I hope that when my readers finish the novel, they use the guide in the back to seek out some of Millay’s writings, or what has been written about her.
In honor of National Poetry Month, which begins today, I am giving away a copy of FALLEN BEAUTY. To win, please comment below with your favorite poet or poem, and please share on social media. The giveaway is open to US residents only, and ends at 9 PM EST on Thursday, April 3rd.
Here is a little on the background of FALLEN BEAUTY to tempt you to open its pages:
