Poet On Demand: The Life, Letters, and Works of Celia Thaxter
by Jane E. Vallier
In this, the first extensive literary biography of Celia Thaxter, author Vallier explains the meaning and symbolism of Thaxter’s poetry and describes how Celia’s unhappy marriage and her life on the Isles of Shoals, off the coast of New Hampshire, colored her poetry and prose. Included in this reprint of the original 1982 edition is a new introduction with additional photographs, fifty-three of Thaxter’s poems plus a reprint of “A Memorable Murder,” the story of the killing of two women on Smuttynose Island in 1873 and first published in Atlantic Monthly.
