KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a comprehensive collection of Miss Moore's prose and poetry, including two complete books of poetry, and Lake A Bulwark. Also previously published in book form are the selection, here from Predilections, Collected Poems (1951), and the translations from the Four more poems are included which have hitherto appeared only in periodicals among them, her very recent ""Rescue With Yul Brynner"". Added to all this, are seven of her artful book reviews and nine prose selections, published first in periodicals, among them that famous correspondence between Miss Moore and the Marketing Research Division of the Ford Motor Company and the equally famous interview between Miss Moore and Donald Hall of the Paris Review. The poet documents her copious quotations. In Motes at the back of this volume. A ""must"" for Miss Moore's many fans and a worthy contribution to the published world of contemporary American poetry.
