He should share his Pulizer with Elizabeth Hardwick

I really like Robert Lowell's collection, The Dolphin, but it is kind of sad that my favorite poems in the book are the ones where Lowell took direct quotes from his ex-wife's (Elizabeth Hardwick)letters and turned them into poems.

He did that with a lot of people, most notable Elizabeth Bishop. For another radical example, heck out Bishop's short story, "In The Village," then read Lowell's poem of the same title in his For the Union Dead collection.
