Abstract

Most of what little is known of the life of Sutton Island poet Hortense Flexner (1885-1973) comes from the film and commentary created by Belgian author Margeurite Yourcenar, who called her "La Grande Poetess du Maine" and felt Flexner was emblematic of Bar Harbor's Cranberry Isles. Detailed biography of Flexner includes criticism, poetic excerpts, and the full text of her poems "Woods After Rain" and "Happy Country," both referring to Sutton Island.
