Amy (Lawrence) Lowell - Personal life and career


Imagist poet, born in Brookline, Massachusetts, USA, the sister of Percival and A Lawrence Lowell. Privately educated, an unconventional member of the great Lowell dynasty, she began to write poetry in her late 20s, producing volumes of free verse which she named ‘unrhymed cadence’ and ‘polyphonic prose’, as in Sword Blades and Poppy Seed (1914). She also wrote several critical volumes, and a biography of Keats.
