Not a surprise due to their close friendship, but this is undeniably influenced by Elizabeth Bishop, especially toward the latter end of Life Studies. Skunk Hour and Night Sweat are the stars of the show in my opinion... how can you beat the subtle sorrow of "I dabble in the dapple of the day"?

3.75 because I'm feeling #pretentious.

So masterful of rhythm, sound, and allusional texture that I hardly ever cared to know the meaning. This is what Stevens would have been if he'd been good at the technical aspects of poetry.

I have never read correspondence before (except in epistolary novels) so I was pleasantly surprised by how readable it was. These letters cover a 30 year span which allows the reader to really get to know Bishop and Lowell. I would recommend either reading their poetry first or having it handy to refer to as (not surprisingly) there are a lot of references to specific poems (even to specific lines or words in the poems).

This collection seems to have little bearing on the original [b:Selected Poems|6947805|Selected Poems|Robert Lowell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1254841970s/6947805.jpg|1237929], published in 1965. It is a shame that the title couldn't have been something different... This expanded edition is a selection of what the editor thought were the best poems in each of Lowell's major books (including the original [b:Selected Poems|6947805|Selected Poems|Robert Lowell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1254841970s/6947805.jpg|1237929] which was probably my least favorite part) and thus is more of a "best of" collection.

The editor has done a marvelous job with the notes in the appendix, and I also recommend reading the introduction (for once -- generally I dislike introductions!).
