“May Sarton has a limpidness of statement that seems easy—actually it is deft and worked and subtle. . . . Her poems need a good deal of watching because they are deceptively smooth.” —Joseph Bennet, The Hudson Review

First published in 1967 to honor the bicentennial of May Sarton’s longtime home, Nelson, New Hampshire, this newly reissued collection celebrates the town’s 250th anniversary. The poems evoke such timeless themes as love, solitude, joy, and nature—set against the background of the changing seasons of New England.

MAY SARTON (1912–1995), renowned novelist, memoirist, poet, and feminist, lived for many years in Nelson, New Hampshire. She is perhaps best known for her nonfiction on growing older (Recovering: A Journal, Journal of Solitude, among others.) She wrote As Does New Hampshire to celebrate the bicentennial of Nelson, and dedicated it to the residents of the town.
