Marianne Moore is an instrumental figure of American poetry, contributing to several 20th century artistic movements and writing some of the best poems of that era. Her work received high praise from modernists T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, H.D., and Wallace Stevens. Over the course of her decades’ long career, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Award, and the National Medal for Literature. Her poetic style was innovative and precise. She often wrote with refined syllabic verse and incredible imagery. Her work was often meta-descriptive, delivering astute observations on poetry itself. For all these contributions, she is forever enshrined as one of America’s best poets. In this illustrated volume, her work is presented on fine paper with Kevin King’s sparse yet fetching little illustrations at section titles. For any admirer of Marianne Moore, it is a crucial volume.

This illustrated edition is in fine condition. In the original faux green leather boards, decoratively gilt stamped. Raised bands. Gilt spine. Text block fine. Decorative endpapers. Gilt edges.
