Our illustrated journey with Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “Moriturus” has reached the halfway point. Her biography is voluminous and interesting – one tidbit is that Edna St. Vincent Millay was the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for poetry (in 1923) after it became a separate award (and the third woman, overall: Sara Teasdale and Margaret Widdemer won Pulitzer Special Citations for their books of poetry in 1918 and 1919, respectively). If you’d like to see my illustrations of stanzas I-III, IV-VI, VII-IX, X-XII, and XIII-XV, click on the numbers. The whole poem can be found here. Drawing (marker on paper) and composition by me.
