May Sarton (1912-1995) was born in Belgium as Eleanor Marie Sarton and was moved to Boston when she was three. A poet, novelist and memoirist, most of her works reflect the lesbian experience. Her first book of poetry was published in 1937, Encounter in April and she won the Levinson Prize for her 1994 Coming Into Eighty. Her acclaimed 1961 novel, The Small Room, analyzes women's education at its best but has a subtheme of lesbian relationships. When she published Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing (1965) she was quoted as saying "The fear of homosexuality is so great that it took courage to write…" Sarton also wrote Nonfiction and Children's books.
