Moore tackled the matter herself: Complete Poems (1967) was once her personal choice, yet she favoured the later paintings, together with lower than 1/2 her output as much as that time.

With an inviting advent and meticulous notes, the New gathered Poems of Marianne Moore is the 1st definitive textual content of this so much celebrated author, whose poems shape half, as T. S.
