Not all that I was expecting. The pictures were pretty, but the poems weren't made much more accessible by the book, which displays them as pretty words, but no real insight otherwise. From my personal knowledge of Millay's life and poetry, a student might actually arrive at a false understanding of the poems from the book, and certain contexts, I think wouldn't be appropriate for students to discuss.
