Nadia Boulanger and Her World

University of Chicago Press

The American poet May Sarton likely met Nadia Boulanger through musical and academic circles in Cambridge, Mass., in the late 1930s, and from 1939 they maintained a correspondence. This chapter includes five poems by Sarton sent to Boulanger, two of them dedicated to Boulanger herself and edited here for the first time. Sarton was particularly struck by Boulanger’s efforts to ensure her sister Lili’s works were brought to life in performance, and reflects here on music, death and memory.

Keywords:   May Sarton, Nadia Boulanger, Lili Boulanger, Harvard University, poetry
