Biographical Note Robert Traill Spence Lowell was born in Boston Massachusetts on 1 March 1917 His father also Robert Traill Spence Lowell was an officer in the United States Navy Lowell s mother Charlotte Winslow Lowell descended from an old New England family Lowell was educated at private schools in Boston and for two years at St Mark s preparatory school Even during his youth and certainly by the time he studied at St Mark s Lowell had decided upon a career as a poet He spent summers reading and studying the English literary tradition imposing his reading lists on friends from school Upon graduation from St Mark s he attended Harvard as men in his family had done for generations After two years at Harvard however Lowell left His departure was precipitated by his meeting in 1937 with Allen Tate a poet of the Fugitive group and a practitioner of the not yet institutionalized New Criticism Lowell and Tate immediately took to one another and Lowell traveled to Tate s Tennessee home during the summer of 1937 he camped out in Tate s yard writing poetry and studying at the feet of the older poet Instead of returning to Harvard that fall Lowell transferred to Kenyon College in Ohio to study with John Crowe Ransom Tate s mentor At Kenyon Lowell befriended Randall Jarrell and Peter Taylor both of whom went on to their own successful careers as writers Lowell graduated summa cum laude in Classics from Kenyon in 1940 He spent the next year studying with Cleanth Brooks and Robert Penn Warren at Louisiana State University Before departing for Louisiana Lowell married Jean Stafford a writer of short stories and novels 1940 also saw Lowell s conversion to Roman Catholicism a repudiation of his ancestors New England Protestantism as well as a dedication to what seemed to him the more authentic faith of the Roman Church After a year at Louisiana State Lowell and Stafford moved to Monteagle Tennessee where they shared a house with Allen Tate and his wife the writer Caroline Gordon When the Second World War began in 1941 Lowell had volunteered for military service His poor eyesight led to his initial rejection from armed service In 1943 however Lowell received a conscription notice from the United States military Shocked and dismayed by the Allied firebombing of civilians in German cities like Dresden he declared himself at this time a conscientious objector He served for several months in jail his experiences form the basis of Memories of West Street and Lepke and finished his sentence performing community service in Connecticut During these months he finished and published his first book Land of Unlikeness During the next year he revised the book and published the new version as Lord Weary s Castle in 1946 This book found a warm critical reception sparked in part by Jarrell s appreciative review in The Nation and it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1947 Lowell s reputation as a leading poet of the new generation was consolidated
