This was Lowell’s first collection, published in 1912 when she was 38. Her first poem had been published only two years previously, and this immature work, based on a volume of Keats (the title is taken from Adonaïs, Shelley’s pastoral elegy to Keats), shows nonetheless her natural affinity with the emerging imagist poetry of Ezra Pound and others.
