This comprehensive collection of May Sarton’s poetry, covering over 60 years of her writing, is a delight. To have so many poems in one volume is a real treasure. For fans of her poetry, or those new to it, as I am myself, there is just so much to discover here. Arranged chronologically, and with poems from 15 books, it’s a book to dip into, or to study in more depth. I feel this is a book that I will be turning to again and again.
