BI. Amy Lowell

29. Damon, S. Foster. Amy Lowell: A Chronicle, With Extracts from Her Correspondence. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1935. Reprint, Hamden, Conn.: Archon, 1966.

This biography by a long-time friend and fellow poet remains a standard work and offers valuable insight into the milieu of the Boston literary establishment in the first quarter of the century, including its preoccupations with the ‘oriental’. Refers often to Lowell’s Japanese interests (see index), and provides a useful account of how the artefacts brother Percival Lowell (D6) sent from Japan helped stir Lowell’s lifelong interest in the culture.
