May and Juliette met in 1936, while May was involved with Julian. After Julian Huxley's death in 1976, they began to write one another again and kept in contact until Juliette's death. Susan Sherman, who edited Sarton's Selected Letters, 1916-1954, now offers insight into Sarton's most profound and affecting romance, with Juliette Huxley, the Swiss-born wife of the English scientist Sir Julian Huxley. --Regina Marler. The publication of her tender, revealing letters has managed to arrest this decline. Their love affair culminated in one passionate week in Paris in 1948, after which--hurt by May's angry threat that she would tell Julian--Juliette broke off the relationship. As May Sarton wrote in old age, "I have had many lovers, many friends since I was 25 and met Juliette Huxley, but none has so nourished the poet and the lover as she did, the incomparable one." The book includes drafts of introductions by

These letters reveal the growth of the human being, May Sarton from the age of 23 until she was in her eighties: the breath of her interests, her. Dear Juliette: an evocation of the "ethos of a love affair" Susan Sherman, editor of Dear Juliette, was bequeathed the challenge of bringing to life Sarton's relationship with Juliette Huxley. Too frail and in ill health to complete the process of selecting and editing hundreds of letters and completing an introduction that would preface this story, Sarton asked Ms. Sherman to complete the work.

Her feelings for and demands on Juliette were often overwhelming to them both. The letters chart their meeting, May's affair with Juliette's husband Julian (brother of Aldous Huxley) before the war, her intense involvement with Juliette after the war, and the rich, ardent friendship that endured until Juliette's death.

Theirs was a relationship rife with complications and misunderstandings but the deep love and compassion they shared for one another prevailed. In these extraordinary letters, we see May Sarton in all her complexities and are privy to her tangled relationship with Juliette Huxley, whom May considered her muse and the greatest love of her life. May Sarton's love for Juliette Huxley, ignited that first moment she saw her in 1936, transcended sixty years of friendship, passion, rejection, silence, and reconciliation. Their reconciliation, after Julian's death, wasn't so much a rekindling as it was a testament to the profound affinity between them.
