Lyrical poet (1892-1950). Her greatest popularity in America was attained in the 1920's and 1930's. Since then she has been largely ignored by both the public and academics. Her reputation was damaged by poetry she wrote in support of the Allied war effort during World War II. Merle Rubin noted "She seems to have caught more flak from the literary critics for supporting democracy than Ezra Pound did for championing fascism."
