From the Paper:

"The purpose of this research is to examine selected poems of Elizabeth Bishop and to discuss them in connection with selected poems of Robert Lowell. The plan of the research will be to set forth the context in which connections between the work of the poets can be clarified, to discuss poems of Bishop that lend themselves to explication according to consistency of imagery or theme, and then to explore poems of Lowell that illuminate or contrast with Bishop's style and content. Evidence will show that there is a consistency in attempts by both of them to articulate a world view and poetic vision in the form of conversation, despite apparent differences in formal style and subject matter.


No discussion of the poetry of Bishop and Lowell would be complete without the knowledge that they were lifelong friends...."
