Edna St Vincent Millay was a lyric poet and playwright. She was the first woman poet to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Millay is also known for her many romantic affairs and her Bohemian lifestyle in Greenwich Village. Aria da Capo is a one-act play. The play shows the upper class's indifference to the carnage of the lower class during the war. The play begins "The curtain rises on a stage set for a Harlequinade, a merry black and white interior. Directly behind the footlights, and running parallel with them, is a long table, covered with a gay black and white cloth, on which is spread a banquet. At the opposite ends of this table, seated on delicate thin-legged chairs with high backs, are Pierrot and Columbine, dressed according to the tradition, excepting that Pierrot is in lilac, and Columbine in pink. They are dining."
