Amy Lowell Letters Project

Preparation of an open-access digital scholarly edition of over 800 letters written by American poet, editor, and critic Amy Lowell (1874–1925).

I seek support for work on an open-access, digital scholarly edition of the letters of American poet, editor, and critic Amy Lowell (1874–1925). At the time of her death in 1925, Lowell was one of the most celebrated and sought-after authors in America, respected both as a poet and as a literary critic. She published prodigiously during her fifteen-year career (1910-1925): six volumes of poetry (three more were published posthumously), two volumes of literary criticism, a two-volume biography of John Keats, and countless articles and reviews. What’s O’Clock, in press at the time of her death, won the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for poetry. She corresponded with virtually all the most prominent poets, editors, and magazine publishers of her time, yet no representative collection of her letters exists I am editing, annotating and doing XML markup on letters related to her career as a powerful, polarizing, and influential figure in twentieth century poetry.
