About this title


"Stanley Moss is American poetry's best-kept secret, better known as the innovative publisher of other poets than for his own highly charged, stingingly beautiful lyrics. That should change with the publication of his long-awaited and gorgeous new poems. "—John Ashbery "Again and again, coming upon a poem of Stanley Moss', I have had the feeling of being taken by surprise. Not simply by the eloquence or the direct authenticity of the language, for I had come to expect those in his poems. The surprise arose from the nature of his poetry itself, and from the mystery that his poems confront and embody, which makes them both intense and memorable. "—W. S. Merwin Rejoicing’ is a magnificent, celebratory gathering of Stanley Moss’s poetry from six decades. He is one of America’s finest poets and this collection demonstrates why. Marilyn Hacker wrote of his work, "Its verbal generosity and bravura, its humanity, the quality and quantity of information which it integrates into poetry of the highest order make it a continuing delight", and in Britain John Fuller wrote: "Stanley Moss’s poems are fresh and unpredictable, full of colour and wisdom. As a poetry that engages the philosophical mind it seems characteristically American in its scope and cultural engagement, but there is also the generous warmth of a mind at ease in its body, open to surprises and possibilities." Stanley Moss was born in 1925. He is the author of several collections of poetry, and is the editor and publisher of The Sheep Meadow Press, a non-profit press devoted to poetry. He makes his living as a dealer in old master paintings, and lives in Riverdale-on-Hudson, New York.
