May Sarton’s poetic celebrations of the American landscape
Written in Santa Fe, New Mexico, May Sarton’s third collection of poems takes inspiration from the land, the light, and the palette of the American Southwest. With archaeological precision, Sarton uncovers American history and heredity. “Plain grandeur escapes definition,” begins one poem. But Sarton’s America is alive with history and is continually redefined by its own settings and mythology.
