This slender volume (48 pages) suffers from two problems. One is visibility. It’s lost among more substantial books and there’s no print on the spine indicating what it contains.
The other major problem is that it’s a book of criticism about a poet who was a major personality, a mover and shaker, in the early part of the 20th century, but was not a major poet.
I’m going to recommend this be kept only because the library also has a volume of Amy Lowell’s “Complete Poetical Works.” If someone reads that and is curious about her, they have this as an additional reference. The critic is an academic, but the approach isn’t overly academic, being as much literary biography as criticism.
