BI. Amy Lowell

27. Ayscough, Florence. ‘Amy Lowell and the Far East’. Bookman (New York) 63 (1926): 11-18.

An appreciation of Lowell’s ‘interpretations of the Farthest East’ by her friend and collaborator on Fir-Flower Tablets (10). Notes a 1917 letter to Lowell from a ‘Japanese admirer’, perhaps Hisada (see 15a), who was so impressed by Lowell’s ‘descriptive power’ in bringing Japanese subjects to life that he assumed she had lived for years in the country. Includes discussion of the importance of Percival Lowell (D6) in shaping his sister’s fascination with things Japanese. Expanded in 16.
