About the Author:

Todd Moore's poetry has appeared in more than a thousand literary journals in the last forty years. He has had more than a hundred books and chapbooks published since 1976. His work has been anthologized in THE OUTLAW BIBLE OF AMERICAN POETRY, DRINKING WITH BUKOWSKI, and LAST CALL. Metropolis, Outlaw Poetry and Free Jazz Network, Lummox, and St. Vitus are among the numerous online websites and zines which have or are currently featuring his essays and poetry. In 2004 Moore along with Tony Moffeit founded the Outlaw Poetry Movement. Presently, Moore co edits, along with his son Theron, ST. VITUS POETRY PRESS. Moore has been called a Meat Poet, a Shock Poet, a Visceral Realist, a street poet, a dirty realist, a noir poet, a pornographer of violence, and an outlaw. He has been working on the ongoing long poem DILLINGER since 1973. And, since 1976 DILLINGER has been appearing piece meal in book and chapbook form. Hailed as both cinematic and hypnotic DILLINGER has been critically acclaimed as the best long poem of the last part of the twentieth century and the first part of the twenty first century. As an epic it rivals THE CANTOS, THE WASTE LAND, PATERSON, and THE MAXIMUS POEMS, as well as such novels as THE SOUND AND THE FURY, THE GRAPES OF WRATH, and BLOOD MERIDIAN. It has been suggested that DILLINGER is the only long poem to appear in the last sixty years which could legitimately lay claim to the title of national epic. And, Todd Moore's essays are beginning to shape and define a whole generation of American poets.
