Edna St. Vincent Millay - LIFE STORIES
 
 
10/19/1950     Millay: "Rapture & Melancholy"
On this day in 1950 Edna St. Vincent Millay died, aged fifty-eight. As a teenager she suspected that "I am, incarnate, rapture and melancholy..."; when she was found at the bottom of the stairs in her home, dead from a fall, the notebook beside her had three lines circled from the draft of a recent poem: "I will control myself, or go inside. / I will not flaw perfection with my grief. / Handsome, this day: no matter who has died."
