Robert Lowell: The Voice of the Poet

Born into one of Boston's most prominent families (and growing up to detest it), Robert Lowell was perhaps the most important poet writing in English during the second half of the twentieth century. After leaving Harvard to study at Kenyon College, Lowell went on to study at Louisiana State University under the novelist and poet Robert Penn Warren. Lowell's second book, Lord Weary's Castle, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1946, and remained in the eye of the public until his death at age 60 in 1977. This site (provided by Salon.com) affords visitors the opportunity to listen to Lowell read two of his own works, Skunk Hour and Dunbarton. Overall, these sites work well as a nice introduction to one of the 20th century's most gifted poets.
