Melissa Bradshaw's careful examination of Amy Lowell as poet and public performer made a huge difference in the way I wrote my biography of Lowell. In effect, Bradshaw overturns decades of wrongheaded and mean spirited accounts of a wonderful writer whose life and work deserve the most careful consideration. Lowell made a huge contribution to poetry, not only in her own work but in her indefatigable efforts on behalf of other poets. And she increased and enriched the audience for poetry.

An outstanding presentation of an important poet 30 Nov 2013
By Carl Rollyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This award winning book restores a major poet and literary figure to her rightful place in American literary history. I was fortunate to be able to read much of Melissa Bradshaw's work before completing my own biography of Amy Lowell. Bradshaw's fresh, penetrating study, based on excellent archival work, greatly influenced my own approach to the poet. Bradshaw's chapter on Duse and her influence on Lowell is powerful. So, too, is Bradshaw's understanding of Lowell as public performer. Written in a clear, elegant prose style, this book is for anyone interested in the fate of poetry in the modern world. Amy Lowell's example has much to teach all of us.
I actually enjoyed this book on it's own merits 16 Sep 2014
By Michael Bradshaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Since the Author is my lovely Daughter, it's difficult for me to be completely objective. That being said, I actually enjoyed this book on it's own merits. In our modern age, we have multiple mediums to process talent such as Music, Art, and yes, even Poetry. We have created a cult of Diva's, although not all are worthy of the title. What Melissa has done here, is to repackage this Artist of old, and present Her as if viewed through modern day eyes as a "Diva". Previously unknown to me, Amy Lowell becomes alive in her own idiosyncratic way. Again, my close ties to the Author, may bias my thinking, but I would point out the she did not gift me the book, I had to buy I it, just like you. I think I got my monies worth with this one.
