Literarily and temperamentally precocious, the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay exemplified the spirit of the "Roaring Twenties" and the emancipation of American women. She started writing as a child and became a rebellious student at Vassar College. In 1917 she moved to Greenwich Village, the center of avant-garde and rebel culture. She won the Pulitzer Prize for The Harp-Weaver in 1923. Poetically, Millay was a romantic, inspired by the ecstatic visions of John Keats and William Wordsworth; her first notable poem "Renascence" (1912) spoke of a nature that "breathed my soul back into me." Her famous quatrain "First Fig" (1920) celebrates abandonment:
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light.
Millay’s romanticism was at odds with literary modernism, and her reputation has declined. However, during the 1920s she exemplified the age that she did so much to define.
Provenance:
The sitter’s sister Norma Millay Ellis [Mrs. Charles Ellis], and her husband Charles Ellis, the artist; gift 1968 to NPG.

Poet Edna St. Vincent Millay personified the rebellious spirit of the 1920s, both in her work and in her bohemian lifestyle. After graduating from Vassar in 1917—the same year she published her first volume of verse—Millay became part of the artists’ community in New York’s Greenwich Village. In what is her most often-quoted quatrain, she summarized her existence there: "My candle burns at both ends; / It will not last the night; / But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends / It gives a lovely light!" Millay worked in traditional verse forms and took as her main theme the integrity of the individual spirit. In 1923, she was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for her Ballad of the Harp-Weaver.
This portrait by her friend William Zorach appeared in Century magazine shortly afterward, in June 1923, accompanying a laudatory article.

Notes:
The Smithsonian Institution was created by authority of an Act of Congress approved August 10, 1846. The Act entrusted direction of the Smithsonian to a body called the Establishment, composed of the President; the Vice-President; the Chief Justice of the United States; the Cabinet; the Mayor of Washington; and the Commissioner of the Patent Office. In fact, however, the Establishment last met in 1877; and control of the Smithsonian has always been exercised by its Board of Regents. The membership of the Regents consists of the Vice-President and the Chief Justice of the United States; three members each of the Senate and House of Representatives; two citizens of the District of Columbia; and nine citizens of the several states, no two from the same state. (Prior to 1970 the category of citizen-Regents not residents of Washington consisted of four members). By custom the Chief Justice is Chancellor. The office was at first held by the Vice-President. However, when Millard Fillmore succeeded to the presidency on the death of Zachary Taylor in 1851, Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney was chosen in his stead; and the office has always been filled by the Chief Justice since that time.

He went on to work with the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE), until returning to the Smithsonian Institution, United States National Museum (USNM). Holmes eventually became head curator of the Smithsonian Institution's Department of Anthropology and Director of the National Gallery of Art.
