  Amy Lowell's Life and Career
Lowell enjoyed writing, and two stories she wrote during this time were printed in Dream Drops; or, Stories from Fairyland (1887), by a "Dreamer." The volume was published privately by her mother, who also contributed material, and the proceeds were donated to the Perkins Institute for the Blind.
Lowell's poems began to appear in increasing numbers in journals, and she was becoming a prolific writer of essays and reviews.
Lowell's lectures on the "new poetry" of imagism and free verse drew large crowds, and she was so persuasive that the public began accepting her literary judgments "as nothing less than gospel" (Heymann, p.214).

 Amy Lowell (1874-1925)
I generally use Amy Lowell's work to explore two major issues: the imagist movement as it was imported into the United States and the treatment of lesbian material by a lesbian poet who felt the need to be more closeted in her writing than in her life.
Lowell's lesbianism and the ways in which it is manifested in her writing generally stimulate some of the liveliest discussions of the course.
Lowell's imagism should, of course, be compared to that of Pound and H.D. Her dramatic monologues should be compared to Pound's personae and to the Victorian British author Robert Browning's dramatis personae.

Lowell was born into Boston's prominent Lowell family.
Lowell's fetish for Keats is well-recorded -- a doubtlessly absurdity for a self-proclaimed imagist.

 Amy Lowell
Amy Lowell was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, to one of the most powerful and wealthiest Boston families.
Lowell herself claimed the imagists’ goal was to: use the language of common speech, create new rhythms, allow absolute freedom in the choice of subject, present an image, believe that concentration is of the very essence of poetry, and produce poetry that is hard and clear, never blurred nor indefinite (Healey).
Lowell was also fond of using flowers and colors as symbols in her poems.

 Amy Lowell: Selected Bibliography
Lowell herself is viewed as an influential and pioneering writer who began a diary at fifteen, originally to record her need for and appreciation of feminine relationships, relationships which were to figure prominently in her subsequent works.
For Lowell, who was both a reader and a contributor, The Masses proved to be a forum for opinion on political topics, including the unemployment problem, labor issues and exploitation, elements which she had observed, and, as a woman embracing Modernism, experienced.
As Lowell was not a man (despite Ezra Pound's vituperative declarations to the contrary) and had died by 1925, this text might appear superfluous; however, Scott's treatment of Lowell and her influence on the Modernist and Imagist movements provides insight into the gender issues inherent in the craft.

 [minstrels] Generations -- Amy Lowell
This was the concept of the Orient developed by Percival Lowell, her brother, and Amy's identification with Oriental life follows the lines of this thought." Poetically, Lowell was especially interested in hokku and tantra and wrote a number of experiments in which she tried to imitate these poetic forms.
According to S. Foster Damon, in his book Amy Lowell: A Chronicle with Extracts from Her Correspondence, each of these might "be considered an experiment in economy of means." That is to say that Lowell did not emulate the elaborate syllabic patterns of these poetic forms.
From: sandi_ordinario@ Comments on Poem #102, Amy Lowell's Generations This seems like a poetically extraordinary compliment addressed to to either a young boy who is a relative, a teenage lover, or a budding poet who is under her tutelage or artistic influence.

But Amy Lowell appreciated the importance of imagism better than Lawrence did because she was still a relatively unknown artist.

Yet it was not the Madison Avenue ruthlessness of Amy Lowell that soured him on imagism as much as his realization that by expanding the number of imagists he had lost, to use another marketing term, quality control over the new poetic product.

 Selected Poems of Amy Lowell edited by Melissa Bradshaw and Adrienne Munich
Before that the little I knew was that Amy Lowell was an acolyte of Pound's Imagism, (which I later found to be not quite accurate), that she was a famous Lowell, and that she had written the widely anthologized poem, "Patterns" (both of which were true).
Lowell's important place in the history of modernism, particularly in the modernist movement which flourished in the United States during the first few decades of the twentieth-century, can be better reassessed with this edition of her poems.
Munich: Lowell was strongly influenced by Coleridge, Keats, Poe, and the French symbolists, in fact, she saw herself as a direct descendent of these poets.

Amy Lowell is best remembered for bringing the Imagism of Ezra Pound and Hilda Doolittle to the attention of Americans, but her work has many facets.
Lowell was determined to go her own way from an early age; she attended school from age 10 to 17 only, studying instead in the home library and at the Boston Athenaeum.
Despite a glandular weight problem and fragile health, Lowell toured energetically in the next decade in the company of Ada Dwyer Russell, a former actress, and became a celebrity on the lecture circuit; meanwhile she extended her range by writing haiku, historical narratives and prose poems.

This new edition of Amy Lowell's poems is a dazzling success in every way imaginable, and I hope people take it up for earnest thanks to the prestige of the Library of America and perhaps of Lowell's new editor, the distinguished memoirist and poet Honor Moore.
Despite all her advantages, Lowell was from the first interested in the ongoing "revolution of the word" that Pound, Flint, Hulme and others were promulgating, first overseas and then, bringing it all back home, here in the USA.
Lowell's best writing is scintillating, sharp as anything Pound did in the way of Imagism, and yet she had something Pound lacked, perhaps a heart and certainly an openness to writing about sex experience that Ol Ez shied away from.
