Publisher Description:
Like many other women, Connecticut photographer Edith Royce Schade first discovered May Sarton's writing in the early seventies. Over the years, Sarton's work greatly influenced Schade's photography. The two women eventually met, forming both a friendship and the idea for a book - this elegant combination of Schade's photographs and selections from Sarton's poetry and prose. For the framework of the book, Schade chose a quotation which Sarton herself used as the theme for some of her poetry readings: "The delights of the poet as I jotted them down turned out to be light, solitude, the natural world, love, time, creation itself." Schade's photographs accompany Sarton's prose and poetry as a pianist accompanies a lyric singer - sometimes in unison, often in harmony, occasionally in counterpoint.
