I began this collection with high hopes and a real liking of Elinor Wylie. But her poems are TOO MUCH. To me, most of them don't sing or change the air around you or put your heart in a vice.

She was clearly a very intelligent woman and some of these works really sparkle but she certainly won't be replacing Millay in my heart.
