Description
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Millay's best and most famous work. A true masterpiece -- beautiful, delicate and poetic. An atmosphere of naive simplicity characterizes the play and throws into relief its deft allegory: the folly of man's hatreds and jealousies and the thoughtlessness which makes them possible.

At the prompting of a tragic muse, two shepherds interrupt a harlequinade, innocently kill each other, and the harlequinade continues unaffected. An intensely effective play of universal appeal.
