Born into a wealthy Bostonian family, Amy Lowell grew up with an excellent education and received early encouragement as a writer. She herself was well-read and well-traveled. At the age of seventeen, she educated herself from the 7,000 volume library at the family home, Sevenels, in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Lowell’s first collection of poetry, A Dome of Many Colored Glass, was published in 1912. She was deeply interested in the Imagist movement and used her skills as a business woman to promote the movement.
Lowell was also devoted to the works of Keats and mined his manuscripts and letters to write a length biography.
