Amy Lowell: Selected Poems (American Poets Project)

by

Amy Lowell: Selected Poems (American Poets Project) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cigar-smoking proponent of free-verse modernism in open rebellion against her distinguished Boston lineage, Amy Lowell cut an indelible public figure in her lifetime. But in the words of editor Honor Moore, "what strikes the contemporary reader is not the sophistication of Lowell's feminist or antiwar stances, but the bald audacity of her eroticism." Her search for an imagist poetry "that is hard and clear, never blurred nor indefinite," found its purest expression in sensual love poems that bristle with lyric intensity. This new selection explores Lowell's full formal range, including "cadenced verse," "polyphonic prose," narrative poetry, and adaptations from the Chinese, and gives a fresh sense of the passion and energy of her work.
