Maker of Humming-birds, A

Maker of Humming-birds, A

“A Maker of Humming-birds” draws a throughline from Amy Lowell as young, wishful poet to the adult Lowell; poet and literary force extraordinaire. With her own passionate poetic voice, Lowell was also a fierce advocate for contemporaries including Robert Frost and D.H. Lawrence and was a central figure in the Imagist movement.

This cycle is excerpted from Amy Lowell: A Rare Pattern, a music drama premiered by and commissioned for Glenda Maurice, dramatic speaker, KrisAnne Weiss, mezzo soprano and Ruth Palmer, piano (2002).
