May Sarton
Journal of a Solitude

Journal of a Solitude


Poet and novelist May Sarton claims, "Loneliness is the poverty of self; solitude is richness of self." From the publisher: "May Sarton’s bestselling memoir of a solitary year spent at the house she bought and renovated." Susan Wise Bauer suggests this as one of the autobiographies and memoirs to read for a "well-educated mind": "This journal is an attempt to understand the nature of solitude... she airs her frustrations over her inward suspicious (common to creative women) that she is shirking her responsibilities by being alone with her books, rather than caring for people."
