iShaikhah_22: All external      marks of abuse are present on this       defiant edifice—          all the physical features of ac- cident—lack       of cornice, dynamite grooves, burns, and         hatchet strokes, these things stand         out on it; the chasm-side is dead. Marianne Moore

johnwilliamsnyt: One more time, my review of a book that's a high-wire act. (To give a sense of its range, a fact from the cutting room floor: Ford once asked Marianne Moore to suggest names for a new model of car. One of the names she sent was Utopian Turtletop.)

IrishLitTimes: Poetry by Marianne Moore (the controversial 1967 version): I, too, dislike it. Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in it, after all, a place for the genuine.

philipwhale: Today's Dürer is Marianne Moore's suitor, bearing a sprig of sea holly in his hands. She loves him for his magnificence in apparel, she says, like a heraldic flame, or a separate fire in the air, and for the fact that his secrets were not easily invaded. Like hers. 1493 - 1928

marihear: Marianne Moore Herself Reading “In Distrust of Merits”:

JeffSharlet: Enough with the territorialism of letters. There are words, they can arranged in "imaginary gardens" with "real toads" in them, as Marianne Moore put it. Sometimes those gardens will be fiction, sometimes nonfiction, or poetry, or "other." No genre is more true than another.

Greg_Gerke: Marianne Moore was Elizabeth Bishop's mentor, she even suggested alterations to her early poems--then she reviewed the book containing them in The Nation. No need to worry about reviewing people one knows...not that anyone does.

AdamStrauss81: Do I ultimately want rhyme that leads to the likes of Harlem Gallery, "The Collar," "The Anniad," many of Marianne Moore's poems--for sure!!! But that's never gonna happen if people don't start trying the mode out. Any end-rhyme has to happen before it HAPPENS.
