Résumé :

This volume is a biography of American poet, novelist, and memoirist May Sarton (1912-1995). Sarton's best and most enduring works probably lies in her journals and memoirs. In these fragile, rambling and honest accounts of her solitary life, Sarton deals with such issues as aging, isolation, solitude, friendship, love and relationships, lesbianism, self-doubt, success and failure, envy, gratitude for life's simple pleasures, love of nature (particularly of flowers), spirituality and, importantly, the constant struggles of a creative life. This work traces Sarton's compulsive quest for recognition and artistic inspiration that would characterize most of her life. Readers witness her at age nineteen as she chooses a life in the theater, only to discover later her real passion: writing. As her literary career takes shape, Sarton still struggles for personal and professional acceptance as noted by her intense relationships with such friends as Muriel Rukeyser and Louise Bogan, and her secret turmoil over her sexuality. But ultimately, readers see Sarton begin to create in her works the image of a strong, independent woman who lived peacefully with solitude -- an image that often contradicted the reality of her life.

The first biography of May Sarton: a brilliant revelation of the life and work of a literary figure who influenced her thousands of readers not only by her novels and poetry; but by her life and her writings about it. May Sarton's career stretched from 1930 (early sonnets published in Poetry magazine) to 1995 (her journal At Eighty-Two). She wrote more than twenty novels, and twenty-five books of poems and journals. The acclaimed biographer Margot Peters was given full access to Sarton's letters, journals, and notes, and during five years of research came to know Sarton herself - the complex woman and artist. She gives us a compelling portrait of Sarton the actress, the poet, the novelist, the feminist, the writer who struggled for literary acceptance. She shows us, beneath Sarton's exhilarating, irresistible spirit, the needy courtier and seducer, the woman whose creativity was propelled by the psychic drama she created in others.
