Marianne Moore

Marianne Moore

Considered “a poet’s poet” for the subtlety of her thought and glittering verse technique, Marianne Moore was also a fascinating character who in later life became a literary celebrity — she was recognized for her cape, three-cornered hat, and baseball fanaticism as for anything she wrote. Wide renown did not come until 1951, when Moore’s Collected Poems won the National Book and Bollingen Awards and the Pulitzer Prize.

What People are Saying

"I learned just how much deeper your understanding of a poem is when you memorize it than when you just read it a couple of times, and how you understand it a little better every single time you recite it."
