About this Item: Yale University Press, 1949. hardcover. 1st edition. New Haven. 1949. Yale University Press. 1st Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. ISBN:. Volume 47 in the Yale Series of Younger Poets. 66 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘It is a good thing that we should be reminded that a poem is not, like a teacher, a bridge between the truth and the ignorant reader, which becomes superfluous once the relation between the latter two has been established, but is itself the terminus of a relation. It is a good thing t1at poets should be reminded that, in poetry, only what you really feel and care about, not what you think you ought to feel and care about, is of any importance. ‘There are dangers in the activist approach, as in any approach. For instance, there is a danger that the detail may be cultivated at the expense of the whole poem, or the attempt to maintain the maximum intensity at every moment may defeat itself but it saves Miss Moore from writing poems without a genuine impulse because one wants to write some poem, or thinks one ought to write a poem about this subject or that, and enables her, when it is successful, to produce lines of great and original beauty.’ - From the Foreword by W. H. Auden. ROSALIE MOORE says of herself: ‘I was graduated from the University of California in the middle of• the depression, went back for an M.A., then worked on two or three small weekly newspapers, and wrote a book-review column for the San Francisco Leader. I finally got on the staff of the Oakland Tribune radio station, and later worked on a government survey (we made housing and labor surveys for the Census Bureau in congested areas in California). I left this in 1941 to marry William L. Brown, a newspaper man from Coo Bay, Oregon. ‘My writing career started seriously about the time I left the radio job when I came in contact with Lawrence Hart, critic and writer who at that time was teaching poetry in the San Francisco Bay region. Hart, with Jeaune McGahey, Robert Barlow, Robert Horan, and others including me, started a group for studying and writing poetry. ‘At present my husband and I are living on a ‘ranch’ (really eighty acres of wooded country) belonging to a friend of ours, in a remote part of Mendocino County, California. We have lived here a year, each getting a book out; mine is the poetry book and his an adventure 4 book set in India where he spent the war years. My husband is a writer of fiction for teen-agers and adults, and we collaborate on stories for young children under the by-line of Bill and Rosalie Brown. We are doing stories currently for Child Life magazine. ‘We are seven miles from the lumber town of Willits and we drive into town twice a week for groceries, kerosene, etc., and do our writing nights, chiefly, by lamplight after the little girls (two and five) are in bed. We have no electricity or phone. The old Dutch- style farmhouse is heated by a cookstove and two fireplaces, one of them six feet long, all of which Bill has to cut wood for. Next fall we are leaving this to move back near San Francisco when our older girl starts school.’. inventory #41152 Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Seller Inventory # z41152
