Abstract

Amy Lowell (1874-1925) was many things: a modernist poet, an editor, an Imagist, a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and a queer, fat woman. At the time of her death, she was one of the most famous poets in America. Due to misogyny and fatphobia, her reputation quickly faded. In conjunction with the Amy Lowell Letters Project, this project intends to engage in feminist recovery work, giving credit where it is due. It utilizes Lowell’s letters to examine her broad impact on the Imagist movement, especially concerning its commercialization.
