Amy Lowell (1874-1925) was a poet who, like Willa Cather, beautifully captured the mood of a specific time and place. We have referenced the following four poems by Amy Lowell in Literature and Composition (EIL2):
“A London Thoroughfare. 2 AM.”
“Midday and Afternoon”
“The Garden by Moonlight”
Interestingly, Amy Lowell also wrote a biography of fellow poet John Keats, which was published in 1925.
Amy Lowell came from a literary family; her great uncle was the poet James Russell Lowell, who wrote the humorous Fable for Critics about his peers.
