The book includes pieces on major works such as Lord Wearys Castle, Life Studies, For the Union Dead, Skunk Hour, Notebook, the sonnets of 1969-73 as well as four essays devoted to Lowells last complete and often neglected work, Day by Day. Essential reading for those interested in the writer who dominated post World War II poetry, the book will appeal to students of American literature and to more general readers as well. The divergent and controversial voices in these essays testify to radical disparities among Lowells endless experiments and to the complexity and endurance of his work.
