Overview

Merrill Moore was a key member of the Fugitive group of poets, a group of then unknown poets who met to read and criticize each other's work and that included John Crowe Ransom, Donald Davidson, Allen Tate and Robert Penn Warren. David R. Slavitt, poet and novelist, has distilled and presented the very best of Moore's work from amongst the many published and unpublished poems available. This 're-introduction' will help establish Merrill Moore as an overlooked master of form and fluency in the modern American poem.
