About This Item

IDB Productions, 2017-01-01. MP3 CD. New. James Russell Lowell was an American Romantic poet, critic, editor, and diplomat. He is affiliated with the Fireside Poets, an assembly of authors in New England who were one of the prime American poets that contended the recognition of British poets. These poets commonly applied orthodox styles and patterns in their verse, writing them as it should be for families enjoying at their fireplace. </br></br>James finished studying at Harvard College in 1838, regardless of his repute as a rabble rouser, and went on to pursue a law degree from Harvard Law School. He released his first set of verse in 1841 and wedded Maria White in 1844. The husband and wife had many progenies, although only one stayed alive after infancy. They eventually became active in the movement to abolish slavery, with James writing poetry to articulate his anti-slavery viewpoints and working in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as the editor of an abolitionist periodical. After returning to Cambridge, James became among the founders of a journal referred to as The Pioneer, which went on with only three issues. He acquired infamy in 1848 with the issuance of A Fable for Critics, a book-form verse ridiculing fellow critics and poets. Then he wrote The Biglow Papers, which amplified his popularity. He continued to write many selections of poetry and sets of essay collections during his literary profession. </br></br>His wife died in 1853, and James became a professor of languages in Harvard the following year; he remained to teach there for 20 years. He went on a trip to Europe before officially undertaking his responsibilities as a teacher in 1856, and wedded Frances Dunlap briefly in 1857. James also became editor of The Atlantic Monthly. After 20 years, he obtained his first political designation, the ambassadorship to the Kingdom of Spain. He was then designated ambassador to the Court of St. James's. He spent his final years in Cambridge in his birthplace and died peacefully in 1891.
