The introduction to this book, one of Sterling's "Poetry for Young People" series, is a fine, four-page biography of Edna St. Vincent Millay, telling us that her mother was so grateful to St. Vincent's hospital in New York for saving a family member she named her firstborn for the hospital. The thirty-four carefully chosen poems not only introduce the poet through her own words, they will whet the appetite of the reader for more. Skillful, appropriate watercolors enhance the poems.
