Amy Lowell (1874-1925) was born in Brookline, Massachusetts. Her brother, Abbot Lawrence Lowell, was president of Harvard University. At age 36, Lowell had her first poem published in the Atlantic Monthly. In 1912, her first book of poems, A dome of many colored glasses was published. She became associated with the Imagists poets when Ezra Pound, whom she had met on a trip to England, included one of her poems in his anthology, Des imagistes. Lowell wrote critical articles for periodicals in addition to her books of poetry and lectured frequently. She died in Brookline.

Amy Lowell was born into a prominent New England family, and educated by private schools and the ample family library. She began writing poetry, and published her first collection in 1912. She became one of the leading imagist poets, along with Ezra Pound, H.D., and Ford Madox Ford. She also acted as editor for several important imagist anthologies, wrote two volumes of criticism, and a highly-praise biography of John Keats. After her premature death, several more volumes of poetry appeared, including What's O'Clock, for which she received the Pulitzer Prize posthumously.
