Edna St. Vincent Millay
She was beautiful, she was witty, she was the daring bohemian poet icon back in the day when people said “poetess” with a straight face. Also her most famous line is pretty much an MGMT lyric:

My candle burns at both ends,
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends
It gives a lovely light.
