Amy Lowell was an American poet who was born on February 9th, 1874, in Brookline, Massachusetts. She was a descendent of the Lowell and Abbott family of Boston who made their fortune in manufacturing textiles and was known as a major figure of the Imagist movement, along with Ezra Pound and Richard Aldington. Her poems, which often explored themes of love, feminism, travel, and identity, were published in such collections as Men, Women and Ghosts (1916) and Pictures of the Floating World (1919). Despite her accomplishments, she was largely overshadowed by her contemporaries and often remained in the shadow of T.S. Eliot. She was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1926 for her work What’s O’Clock. Amy Lowell died of a cerebral hemorrhage on May 12th, 1925, in Brookline, Massachusetts.
