About the Author

Volume by volume, Robert Lowell revealed the age in which he lived, both drawing its portrait and animating its conscience.  At the time of his death, he was the most prominent and honored American poet of his generation.  Born in Boston, the heir to a patrician family, Lowell was instinctively rebellious.  His troubled family history, broken marriages, and manic-depressive episodes became the subjects of his poems and marked a shift from the dense rhetoric of his early work toward a more open, confessional style.  He was a great peom and our truest historian.
