    Bi, you have captured what I like best about May Sarton, viz., her use of internal tension as both a subject as well as an impetus for her writing. My two favourite works of hers are Plant Dreaming Deep, which is an early autobiographical work and Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Sing which is also a relatively early work of fiction. I know your reading list is lengthy; nevertheless, if at some point you review more Sarton, I, for one, shall be happy. Again, my thanks for your sharing in this blog.

      Thanks Jan. Mrs Stevens is on my ‘to read list’ but I might now add Plant Dreaming Deep. Both are mentioned in Journal of a Solitude. You’re right that the use of internal tension is very strong in her work and I enjoyed her writing very much indeed.
