Quick Reference

(1821–53), married J.R. Lowell (1844), and was important in her own right as the author of poems, 20 of which were published in 1855, and a complete collection in 1907 and 1936. She stimulated her husband's interests in antislavery and the Transcendentalist movement. Her poetry, with a few exceptions, is considered cultivated but derivative, and her greatest work is the Abolitionist poem Africa.
