Now Available in eBook Format

Just in time for National Poetry Month, the poems of Pulitzer Prize winning poet Anne Sexton are available in eBook format for the first time. Ms. Sexton's candid and highly intelligent work earned her many honors in addition to the Pulitzer. She received several honorary degrees, a Guggenheim Fellowship, grants from the Ford Foundation, and she was invited to teach at Colgate University and Boston University.  Ms. Sexton's work brought to light many issues that are particularly relevant for women, but her words resonate with both males and females. Read her thoughtful and eloquent poetry on the Freading site anywhere you can access the Internet.

“Anne Sexton is one of the writers by whom our age will be known and understood in times to come. . . . [Her poems] will be understood in time—not as ‘women’s poetry’ or ‘confessional poetry’—but as myths that expand the human consciousness.” 
The New York Times
“One of the most important American poets of her generation.” —Margaret Atwood
“[Anne Sexton] domesticates my terror, examines and describes it, teaches it some tricks which will amuse me, then lets it gallop wild in my forest once more.” —Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
