Lowell s early poetry is often overshadowed by the emergence of his confessional poetry (that develops in Life Studies- however, instead of Lowell s early poetry being eclipsed by Life Studies, a remembrance of his early poetry is necessary as a way of understanding Lowell s evolution as a poet. The early poetry provides readers and scholars of Lowell with a Puritan paradigm and the ethos of an American narrative that Lowell never fully abandons but only perpetually deconstructs.
