Short biography
Edna St. Vincent Millay pulled herself out of a poverty-stricken childhood and became queen of the Bohemians during her years in New York's Greenwich Village. She expressed the recklessness of the Lost Generation of writers and artists following World War I with her famous poem "First Fig" ("my candle burns at both ends. . ."). She was the first woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.
