About The Book
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.
From May Sarton’s Well is an inviting introduction to the poetry and
prose of May Sarton. For those who are already familiar with her work, this
book is a gathering of many nuggets of Sarton’s beautifully expressed wisdom.
It is a treasure to be kept at one’s bedside for frequent revisits.
It was one of three finalists in the Fiction/Drama/Poetry/Literary
Criticism category of the 1995 Benjamin Franklin Awards.
