          Sinopsis
          In this soul-stirring collection of timeless verse, five legendary female poets address life's pains and sorrows as well as its joys and renewals. The poems appeal to the heart, providing companionship on the rugged path that all must tread. The roster features writers from ancient to modern times: Sappho, Emily Dickinson, Amy Lowell, Sara Teasdale, and Edna St. Vincent Millay. As instapoets continue to make poetry more accessible and popular, they build on the tradition of intimate, confessional works built by earlier generations. No one is more prominent at this heritage than the mysterious, evocative fragments of Sappho, which inspired an earlier generation of female poets to let loose their own talent. From idiosyncratic Dickinson to the passionate, Pulitzer Prize–winning Lowell, the romanticism of Teasdale, and the intense art of St. Vincent Millay — yet another Pulitzer winner — these writers were early trailblazers in speaking their emotional truth through their craft. This handsome volume features original illustrations by Claire Whitmore, a Foreword by poet and novelist Lisa Locascio, and brief biographies of all five poets.
          Acerca de Emily Dickinson

          La poetisa norteamericana Emily Dickinson nació en Amherst, Nueva Inglaterra, en 1830. Estudió en la Academia de Amherst y en el Seminario Femenino de Mount Holyoke, Massachusetts, donde se formó en un ambiente calvinista muy rígido, contra el que manifestó un obstinada rebeldía, pero que impregnó profundamente su extraña concepción de Universo.Emily Dickinson se aisló muy pronto del mundo y no admitió, a partir de entonces, entrar en contacto con nadie que no estuviera a la altura de sus conocimientos y de sus afectos, como lo estuvieron, por ejemplo, sus cuatro preceptores : Benjamin Franklin Newton, quien le hizo leer en edad muy temprana a Emerson, y luego el reverendo Charles Wadsworth, el escritor Samuel Bowles y el Juez Otis P. Lord, con quienes mantuvo una correspondencia abundante y asidua a la que hoy recurren todos aquellos que desean ahondar en la aventura espiritual de tan peculiar personalidad.

          Acerca de Edna St. Vincent Millay

          Edna St. Vincent Millay was born in 1892 in Rockland, Maine, the eldest of three daughters, and was encouraged by her mother to develop her talents for music and poetry. Her long poem "Renascence" won critical attention in an anthology contest in 1912 and secured for her a patron who enabled her to go to Vassar College.After graduating in 1917 she lived in Greenwich Village in New York for a few years, acting, writing satirical pieces for journals (usually under a pseudonym), and continuing to work at her poetry. She traveled in Europe throughout 1921-22 as a "foreign correspondent" for Vanity Fair. Her collection A Few Figs from Thistles (1920) gained her a reputation for hedonistic wit and cynicism, but her other collections (including the earlier Renascence and Other Poems [1917]) are without exception more seriously passionate or reflective.In 1923 she married Eugene Boissevain and — after further travel — embarked on a series of reading tours which helped to consolidate her nationwide renown. From 1925 onwards she lived at Steepletop, a farmstead in Austerlitz, New York, where her husband protected her from all responsibilities except her creative work. Often involved in feminist or political causes (including the Sacco-Vanzetti case of 1927), she turned to writing anti-fascist propaganda poetry in 1940 and further damaged a reputation already in decline. In her last years of her life she became more withdrawn and isolated, and her health, which had never been robust, became increasingly poor.She died in 1950.

          Acerca de Amy Lowell

          Amy Lowell (1874-1925) was an American poet and critic, influential in the Imagist movement. Her best-known collections of poems were A Dome of Many-Colored Glass (1912), Pictures of the Floating World (1919), and What's O'Clock (1925). She is remembered for her poetical use of anti-war sentiment, lesbian themes, and the personification of inanimate objects. She was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1926.
