Grown-Up

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Edna St. Vincent Millay was an American lyrical poet and playwright. She won poetry prizes from an early age, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1923, and went on to use verse as a medium for her feminist activism. She also wrote verse-dramas and a highly-praised opera The King's Henchman. Her novels appeared under the name Nancy Boyd, and she refused lucrative offers to publish them under her own name.
