12 Poets #6: Marianne Moore

It’s hard to believe, but another month has passed and it’s time for a new poet. We are now into the 20th century, and our poet for September is the brilliant and eccentric American modernist poet Marianne Moore. One of the most accomplished and celebrated poets of her century, Moore was also a devout Presbyterian, a fact which does not immediately show itself in her work but which we shall try to look at more closely as the month unfolds. She will be a challenging poet to work with, for the complexity of her style, but also a delight. I’m looking forward to sharing her work and my responses to it with you all.
