The Old Glory by Robert Lowell - Hardback

Availability: In stock



Mr Lowell’s first dramatic work, The Old Glory, consists of three plays, ‘Benito Cereno’, ‘My Kinsman, Major Molineux’, and ‘Endecott and the Red Cross’.

Based on stories by Hawthorne and a novella by Melville, they are held to- gether by the unifying symbol of the flag. The first two plays were presented with great success late in 1964 at the American Place Theatre under the direction of Jonathan Miller.

Mr Lowell has made revisions in all three texts for this definitive edition of the complete work, and Mr Miller has contributed a director’s preface.

Robert Lowell’s collections of poetry include: Life Studies, Imitations, and For the Union Dead.

First edition published by Faber and Faber in 1966
