Millay, Edna St. Vincent (1892 - 1950)

Genre: Drama/Theatre/Film, Non-Fiction, Poetry

Millay was born in Rockland, spent much of her childhood in Camden, graduated from Vassar, and won the 1923 Pulitzer Prize in poetry for The Harp Weaver and Other Poems. One of her most famous poems, Renascence, is said to have been inspired by the view from the top of Camden's Mt. Battie. Although Millay rarely returned to Camden after college, she and her husband often summered on Ragged Island in Casco Bay.
