Format: Paperback
This charming collection of essays will do a great deal to inspire readers to turn the pages of Amy Lowell with a deeper understanding of her words. Today, the spirit of Amy Lowell's poetry resides in these essays.

This collection explores the work of one of Americas most influential poets, 1925 Pulitzer Prize-winner Amy Lowell (1874-1925). A cigar-smoker, Boston Brahmin, lesbian, impresario, entrepreneur, wildly popular lecturer, and best-selling poet. A respected authority on modern poetry, she forged the path that led to the works of the famous Allen Ginsberg, May Sarton, Sylvia Plath, and beyond.

To date, this book provides a thorough examination of this prolific poet. Amy Lowell, American Modern should be read to discover more about one of America's most influential poets.
