Robert Lowell is best known for his volume Life Studies . In Robert Lowell: An Introduction to the Poetry, Mark Rudman observes that this book "charts a year, from summer to summer.

Robert Lowell is best known for his volume Life Studies, but his true greatness as an American poet lies in the astonishing variety of his work. The plot, such as it is, revolves around the breakup with his wife, Elizabeth Hardwick, and his relationship with Caroline Blackwood. In a note prefacing his Selected Poems, Lowell remarked that "my verse autobiography sometimes fictionalizes plot and particular"; by labeling his poems "verse autobiography," he called attention to the inseparable relation between his life and his art.

Only 17 left in stock (more on the way). As for the rest of this giant book, I don't know that Lowell ever matches the titanic brilliance of his early work again but, of course, there are many dozen gems along the way and his excellent poems are another poet's lifetime achievements. In any case, if you're interested in getting into Lowell, I think this is a good place to begin (and end).

Among the better known poems in the volume are "Mr Edwards and the Spider" and "The Quaker Graveyard in Nantucket. Lord Weary's Castle was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1947.

The crucial books are Life Studies and For the Union Dead, but the Selected Poems is the perfect place to start if one wants a good broad overview of his career.

Robert Traill Spence Lowell IV (/ˈloʊəl/; March 1, 1917 – September 12, 1977) was an American poet. He was born into a Boston Brahmin family that could trace its origins back to the Mayflower. His family, past and present, were important subjects in his poetry. Growing up in Boston also informed his poems, which were frequently set in Boston and the New England region. The literary scholar Paula Hayes believes that Lowell mythologized New England, particularly in his early work.

Chosen and introduced by Katie Peterson on the occasion of Robert Lowell's one hundredth birthday, Brief Selected Poems offers a perfectly chosen and illuminating representation of one of the great careers in twentieth-century poetry.

Robert Lowell was born in 1917, the son of the famous Lowells of Boston, a family that already boasted two poets, James Russell Lowell and Amy Lowell. He followed family tradition by enrolling at Harvard, but after two years – and upon the advice of his psychiatrist – transferred to Kenyon College.

Lowell’s mother, Charlotte Winslow Lowell, descended from an old New England family.

Arguably the leading poet of his generation, Robert Lowell was a poet whose work was always rhetorically gifted, original and open to change. Increasingly, it is clear that Lowell, troubled himself, was the poet who spoke for his troubled nation - fusing public and private. In an unofficial sense, Lowell was the American Laureate. This selection, chosen by the poet himself, is the ideal introduction to a vast body of important work.
Comments to eBook Selected Poems
Moswyn
This is a good book. The revised edition (which this is) contains a wide and well-chosen selection of Lowell's poetry. He notes in the foreword that he tried to choose possible sequences rather than just greatest hits out of context. This effort is visible and the book flows together like almost one book instead of a career's overview.
What was interesting for me as I read it was that I was reading a used copy which was liberally marked up with underlines and notes of various kinds. Normally, this drives me crazy and as it was in pencil I began by first erasing five pages worth of notes and then reading on myself. Gradually, however, about one third through the book I noticed that whoever it was that had owned the book before shared a lot of tastes with me. I started enjoying his/her remarks and notitions and it felt like I was having a little conversation about the book.
The former owner underlined without comment the line where Lowell comments he "lies to friends and tells the truth in print". He circled the "Long Summer" sequence titles and placed an awed exclamation point after Lowell's poem for Ford Madox Ford. We both, apparently love "Margaret Fuller Drowned" as it rated one of only three poems marked with a star in the whole book.
It was a wonderful book, and while this shouldn't be construed as license to mark up books (I still find it a barbaric habit), it was also a good conversation.

I made the mistake of getting this edition just as the new COLLECTED POEMS OF ROBERT LOWELL (edited by Frank Bidart) was coming out. The new book has all the notes, introductory biographical info (Lowell writes about his life as if you already know about it) and additional Lowell that THE SELECTED POEMS lacks.
However, if you want to go cheap (or don't need notes) this is not a bad 'Selected Poems'. It's fairly comprehensive, yet not too long -- and it gives you a good sense of the poet. It's been all people had for years (other than buying each of his many books). I think with the new COLLECTED, however, it has probably run its course.

I know that the new Collected Poems has recently arrived, and it is a massive tome. But you don't really need it. Most of what Lowell wrote after "For the Union Dead" isn't that great. And in the Selected you get a great selection from what is effectively Lowell's first book, Lord Weary's Castle--which is a pretty strong book. There is also a generous selection from Life Studies and For the Union Dead (though I've bought the book that contains both complete collections). Lowell was a pretty important poet, but really, the Collected just goes overboard. This is all you really need.
