This volume presents a re-evaluation of Lowell, and builds a solid critical basis for assessing her poetry, criticism, politics and influence. Essays explore the varied contributions of Lowell as a woman poet, a modernist and a significant force behind the literary debates of early-20th-century poetics. In addition to placing Lowell in her proper historical context, contributes demonstrate her centrality to current critical and theoretical discussions: femist, gay and lesbian, and post-colonial, as well as in disability, American and cultural studies. The book includes the work of a transatlantic group of literary critics and scholars.
