In the unicorn and other poems, she now brings together, for the first time, a poet, written between 1935 and 1955. Some of these poems have appeared in magazines; many have never been published, among them the long poem that gives the book its title. Here is her poet's response to the great experience of life: to love and death, to the joy of flight, to art and nature, to the impact of a world at war.
