Brian Beatty On Robert Lowell

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Robert Lowell (1917-1977)

I wouldn’t write at all if it weren’t for myriad writers before me whose works showed me what was possible. The poems of this series are small offerings of respect, of thanks, to those muses. – Brian Beatty

Robert Lowell

The painter at the sea’s 
edge arranged an easel 

to prop up a mirror
the size of the horizon.

  1. To my mind, nobody is better than Lowell at transforming the personal into the universal.

  2. A summary is just that, a short overview of the book's plot. A review is a critical examination of a work. A good review should attempt to be impartial, pointing out both the good and bad qualities of the book
