Just a thought…

I am working my way through The Portable Dorothy Parker. It’s my first real introduction to her writing and I am really enjoying it. I just have one little observation to make before I go back to reading the rest of the book. I find that the more I read of her poetry, the more I am convinced that Dorothy Parker and Edna St. Vincent Millay are probably having a marvelous time hanging out together in some literary afterlife.  While Parker’s poems are a bit more tongue-in-cheek than Millay’s sonnets, they strike me as kindred spirits in how they approached life, love, and men.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
