Gathered on the occasion of Robert Lowell’s 100th birthday, these poems offer a fresh and illuminating representation of one of the great careers in 20th-century poetry. The renowned and controversial author of many books of poems, plays, and translations, Lowell was one of the United States’ most honoured poets, winning the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 1947 and 1974, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. His ongoing interrogation of his family legacy, his personal struggle with manic depression, and his mastery of the tradition of poetry in English formed the groundbreaking autobiographical foundation of ‘Life Studies’ (1959) and the books that followed it.
