Over the years, Sartons work greatly influenced Schades photography. The two women eventually met, forming both a friendship and the idea for a book - this elegant combination of Schades photographs and selections from Sartons poetry and prose. For the framework of the book, Schade chose a quotation which Sarton herself used as the theme for some of her poetry readings: The delights of the poet as I jotted them down turned out to be light, solitude, the natural world, love, time, creation itself. Schades photographs accompany Sartons prose and poetry as a pianist accompanies a lyric singer - sometimes in unison, often in harmony, occasionally in counterpoint.From May Sartons Well is an inviting introduction to the poetry andprose of May Sarton. For those who are already familiar with her work, thisbook is a gathering of many nuggets of Sartons beautifully expressed wisdom.It is a treasure to be kept at ones bedside for frequent revisits.It was one of three finalists in the Fiction/Drama/Poetry/LiteraryCriticism category of the 1995 Benjamin Franklin Awards.
