诗人的传记

艾米·洛厄尔于1874年出生在塞韦尔斯,这是马萨诸塞州布鲁克林的一个10英亩的家庭庄园。她的家族是新英格兰的圣公会教徒,在波士顿社会的上层。洛厄尔是五个孩子中最小的一个。她的哥哥艾伯特·劳伦斯(Abbott Lawrence)在她出生时是哈佛大学的一名新生,后来成为哈佛学院的院长。作为一个年轻的女孩,她首先在家里接受家教,然后在波士顿上私立学校,在此期间,她和家人去了几次欧洲。17岁时,她躲在拥有7000册藏书的塞纳尔斯图书馆里学习文学。洛厄尔从小就被鼓励写作。1887年,她与母亲和妹妹共同撰写了《梦滴》或《一个梦想家的童话》一书,由波士顿卡普尔斯和赫德公司私下出版。她的诗《固定的想法》于1910年在《大西洋月刊》上发表,之后洛厄尔在各种杂志上发表了自己的诗。1912年10月,霍顿·米夫林出版了她的第一部作品集《五彩玻璃的穹顶》。 The primary Imagists were Pound, Ford Madox Ford, H.D. (Hilda Doolittle), and Richard Aldington. This Anglo-American movement believed, in Lowell's words, that "concentration is of the very essence of poetry" and strove to "produce poetry that is hard and clear, never blurred nor indefinite." Lowell campaigned for the success of Imagist poetry in America and embraced its principles in her own work. She acted as a publicity agent for the movement, editing and contributing to an anthology of Imagist poets in 1915. Her enthusiastic involvement and influence contributed to Pound's separation from the movement. As Lowell continued to explore the Imagist style she pioneered the use of "polyphonic prose" in English, mixing formal verse and free forms. Later she was drawn to and influenced by Chinese and Japanese poetry. This interest led her to collaborate with translator Florence Ayscough on Fir-Flower Tablets in 1921. Lowell had a lifelong love for the poet Keats, whose letters she collected and influences can be seen in her poems. She believed him to be the forbearer of Imagism. Her biography of Keats was published in 1925, the same year she won the Pulitzer Prize for her collection What's A Clock. A dedicated poet, publicity agent, collector, critic, and lecturer, Lowell died in 1925 at Sevenals.
