BI. Amy Lowell


13. Ballads for Sale. Edited by Ada Dwyer Russell. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1927.

A second posthumous collection edited by Russell, Lowell’s companion and literary executor.

a. Tanka. Adopts the 5-7-5-7-7 syllable pattern of classical tanka, though beyond this bears little relation to Japanese materials.

b. Pillar Prints. Seven brief descriptions of hashirae which could be either Chinese or Japanese but for the obscure reference in the fourth to the Japanese ‘Lady Yasurahi’.
