Synopsis: More than thirty years after her death, Marianne Moore continues to be one of America's most beloved poets. However, her Collected Poems (1951) omits twenty years of later beauties. And her inaccurately titled Complete Poems (1967) is likewise incomplete, leaving out nearly half of her body of verse and giving readers only a partial view of her work.
This complete collection of Moore's poetry, lovingly edited by the prizewinning poet Grace Schulman, for the first time contains all of Moore's poems, including 120 previously uncollected and unpublished ones. Organized chronologically to allow readers to follow Moore's development as a poet, the volume includes an introduction, all of Moore's original notes to the poems, along with Schulman's notes, attributions, and some variants. This long-needed volume will reveal to Moore's admirers the scope of her poetic voice and will introduce new generations of readers to her great achievement. The Poems of Marianne Moore is a must have both for Moore devotees and any reader seeking an introduction to the work of one of America's greatest poets.
About the Author: Marianne Moore (1887-1972) was awarded the Bollingen Prize, the National Book Award, and the Pulitzer Prize for her Collected Poems. Grace Schulman is the recipient of the Aiken Taylor Award for Modern Poetry and author, most recently, of Days of Wonder: New and Selected Poems (2002). She is Distinguished Professor of English at City University of New York, poetry editor of The Nation, and former director of the 92nd Street Y Poetry Center.
