I first came across Amy Lowell in high school in the early '70s. I first read Fir-Flower Tablets which first introduced me to the Chinese poet Li Po. I was enchanted with Pictures of the Floating World and I have spent a good deal of my time collecting her work by haunting bookstores. As a poet myself Amy Lowell was in many ways an influence in my work along with Ovid and Catullus. I am really big fan of hers although I do know that she does not rate with the likes of Emily Dickinson for example or some others. But I like her.

Format: Hardcover
A fan, and writer of poetry myself, I had never heard of Lowell before and found myself stunned by the first work I read of hers, "Patterns." This lead me to read quite a few other poems of hers in a number of her books, and the whole of "Pictures of a Floating World." Although there are many poems that are not very innovative or specifically charming, it is worth the read to discover her brilliance in so many of her poems. The imagist poetry movement of the early 1900's is often overlooked if one is not an extremely avid fan of it, but what a beautiful thing it is when Lowell writes at her best. Her poetry is straight forward, beautiful, loving, "poetic"(ha, ha), tender and emotional, amusing at times, and it, not surprisingly, creates beautiful images in ones mind. Lowell's life is just as interesting as her poetry, and it should be looked in to as well, to gain a better understanding and appreciation for her poetry. Enjoy!
