Another Forever Love

Edna St. Vincent Millay was a well-known poet and playwright in New York City. In 1923 she met Eugen Boissevain a businessman, poet, and feminist. Even though they had known each other only a few weeks Millay willingly accepted Boissevain’s marriage proposal. As it turned out Boissevain took on all necessary duties so that his wife could continue to write.

He traveled around the world with Millay and did all he could for her. His love for her went so far as to even accept her relationship with her lover, George Dillon in 1928. When she suffered a nervous breakdown he remained devoted to her especially since she wasn’t able to write. They remained together for twenty-six years and it was only Boissevain’s death in 1949 that parted them. Millay followed him to the world beyond a year later. So even though their love was not perfect it was a true love that kept them together through sunny and stormy weather.
