Turned a corner in Moe's and saw the new Robert Lowell Collected Poems staring at me, dust jacket like a box from Tiffany's or a slightly ill chocolate mint. Good. I needed something else to balance Merrill.

How long has Lowell been dead? Why is this book just coming out now? Why would you die and leave your literary legacy in the hands of Frank Bidart?
