I first read this bio of ESVM when I was in high school writing a paper on her, but I revisited it when Nancy Milford and Daniel Mark Epstein came out with new bios in 2001. It's not as thorough and Gould didn't have access to much of the material that Milford did, but I thought it read somewhat like a novel and I really enjoyed it.
A little overdone, but it has that great anecdote about why Millay didn't get booted out of college in it.
