    Amy Lowell * THE TAXI When I go away from you The World beats dead Like a slackened drum. Amy Lowell CROWNED You came to me bearing bright roses,
    A little garden on a bleak hillside
    Where deep the heavy, dazzling mountain snow
    Lies far into the spring. The sun's pale glow
    Is scarcely able to melt patches wide
    About the single rose bush. All denied
    Of nature's tender ministries. But no,
    For wonder-working faith has made it blow
    With flowers many hued and starry-eyed.
    Here sleeps the sun long, idle summer hours;
    Here butterflies and bees fare far to rove Amid the crumpled leaves of poppy flowers; Here four o'clocks, to the passionate night above Fling whiffs of perfume, like pale incense showers. A little garden, loved with a great love! Amy Lowell AZURE AND GOLD April had covered the hills With flickering yellows and reds, The sparkle and coolness of snow Was blown from the mountain beds. Across a deep-sunken stream The pink of blossoming trees, And from windless appleblooms The humming of many bees. The air was of rose and gold Arabesqued with the song of birds Who, swinging unseen under leaves

    Amy Lowell the daughter of wealthy parents, was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, in 1874. After being privately educated Lowell travelled widely before settling in New York.
    Her first volume of poems, A Dome of Many Coloured Glass was published in 1912. Rebelling against her respectable upbringing, Lowell shocked society by smoking large black cigars. Lowell also held radical political views and in 1914 and began having her work published in The Masses , a socialist journal edited by Floyd Dell and Max Eastman
    A supporter of modern poetry, Lowell edited an annual anthology of imagist poets during the First World War . This period also saw the publication of Lowell's second volume of verse, Sword Blades and Poppy Seed (1914) and a critical study, Six French Poets (1915). This was followed by

    Outselling the Modernisms of Men:
    Amy Lowell and the Art of Self-Commodification
    Melissa Bradshaw
    The famous 1912 New Poetry Fire kindled by the good and great Harriet Monroe was burning up the prairie, and anything any poet did was temporarily news, at last. New Books of Poetry were popping like Popcorn. Amy Lowell was telling Massachusetts just where to get off. Ezra Pound had broadcasted imagism from London. In just two months [Edgar Lee Master's] Spoon River [Anthology] was to start in Reedy's Mirror, and to be read to tatters in Chicago and London before it came out in Book Form. Frost was coming out in England and was about to be lionized in Boston, Sandburg was soon to receive his first prize, that for His poem on Chicago, from Harriet Monroe, and all the poets in America for the first time in thirty years were looking one another in the eye. Vachel Lindsay Poetry 's annual cash prize for his poem "Chicago." While it would be naive to ignore issues of canonicity and the power exercised by figures like Pound and Eliot and Ford Madox Ford in shaping current understandings of modernist poetics, and while the paper trail left behind in letters by Monroe, Lowell, Pound, Frost, John Gould Fletcher, [End Page 141] and Margaret Anderson, among others, certainly deflates Lindsay's claim that American poets were "looking one another in the eye" (p. 455), I want to indulge in the reconceptualization of modernist poetry hierarchies suggested by his narrative. Doing so levels the playing field and allows us to imagine the cultural space of early twentieth-century poetry not as an oligarchy presided over by alienated expatriates writing against the philistinism of the masses, but as a capitalist marketplace in which poetry is a commodity.

    From A Dome of Many-Coloured Glass (1912) (from netLibrary "The sonnets are especially appealing and touch the heart strings so tenderly that there comes immediate response in the same spirit. . . ." Boston Sunday Globe
    Leisure, thou goddess of a bygone age,
    When hours were long and days sufficed to hold
    Wide-eyed delights and pleasures uncontrolled
    By shortening moments, when no gaunt presage
    Of undone duties, modern heritage,
    Haunted our happy minds; must thou withhold
    Thy presence from this over-busy world,
    And bearing silence with thee disengage
    Our twined fortunes? Deeps of unhewn woods
    Alone can cherish thee, alone possess
    Thy quiet, teeming vigor. This our crime:
    Not to have worshipped, marred by alien moods
    That sole condition of all loveliness,
    The dreaming lapse of slow, unmeasured time.

    Swept, clean, and still, across the polished floor
    From some unshuttered casement, hid from sight

    Lowell, Amy (1874-1925)
    page: Amy Lowell was a poet, translator, essayist, literary biographer, and public speaker. Her poetry is extremely frank, forthrightly sensual, and often overtly lesbian. She was born February 9, 1874, in Brookline, Massachusetts, to Augustus and Katherine Lawrence Lowell. She was much younger than her siblings and so grew up lonely in the company of literate and socially sophisticated adults on the ten-acre family estate, Sevenels. She was a precocious child even among a prominent family of high achievers and important New England personages, James Russell Lowell, a great-cousin, among them. Sponsor Message.
    Throughout her life, Lowell would struggle to distinguish herself on her own merits and accomplishments, apart from her family fortune and famous relatives. She attended private girls' schools until age seventeen when she left school to care for her elderly parents. At home, she undertook a rigorous self-education, reading widely among the several thousand books in the library of Sevenels. She became an ardent student of poetry, especially Keats's. After her parents' deaths, Lowell purchased Sevenels from her father's estate, transforming the house and stables into a compound almost totally devoted to her two great endeavors: creating and promoting modern American poetry and breeding dogs.
