May Sarton 1912 1995 was a lesbian writer Born in Belgium her family escaped to England when Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in 1914 the incident that triggered the First World War One year later her family moved again this time to Boston In 1945 she met her partner for 13 years Judy Matlack She wrote many poetry novels and non fiction books but she was most known for her memoirs This book Journal of a Solitude is said to be her bestThis memoir includes almost daily entries of her life for the span of one year 1972 1973 The title is about her preference to be alone when she writes poetry the literature form she likes best I am still to see a poetry book by her but I have a feeling that most of her poems are sad because this book is also sad Don t get me wrong though she is not a hermit living alone in a cabin in the middle of the woods In the book she mentioned about her visitors too like my favorite Virginia Woolf also a lesbian and other writers whose names just don t ring a bell In fact I did not know anything about May Sarton until this book Thanks to the 501 Must Read Books for recommending this to meSarton was 60 when she wrote this book It was just two years after her partner for 13 years died So naturally she was still grieving However she did not mention her grief in the book denial trying to forget Rather she made herself busy doing the household chores tend to her garden teaching at the university and meeting with her friends Superficially everything seems to be ordinary except that when you read her journals you know that she is still deeply hurt inside Then since she was a good poet based on what I read in her journals her words were lyrical and heartfelt if not magical I think those are what make this book really loved by women who are feminists andor lovers of good literature Think of Anne Frank at 60 who knows how to write good poetry and instead of hiding inside the library her emotions are the ones hidden inside her heart and poured out only via the choicest and the most beautiful rhythmic versesMy favorite part is about Perley Cole his gardener Widowed by his wife due to her long illness he had to continue working tending Sarton s garden He died in the ambulance and he had no service and was cremated Sarton writes It is the loneliest dying and the loneliest death I ever heard of How many times he has said to me in these last months I never thought it would end like this How is one to accept such a death What have we come to when people are shoveled away as if that whole life of hard work dignity self respect could be discarded at the end like an old beer canI liked this book
