Ada Dwyer Russell, circa 1916.
In "The Taxi," Lowell conveys a strong sense of her separation and pain. Collected in Sword Blades and Poppy Seed (published in September of 1914), "Taxi" serves as an excellent example of Amy Lowell's "polyphonic prose," in which she experimented with different "rhythmic units."
Ada Dwyer Russell, who is almost certainly the subject of many of Lowell's poems, is shown on stage in the play, Merely Mary Ann.
