"It is time to celebrate the singular beauty and power of Stanley
Moss's poetry. He is a citizen of the world, both past and present,
one who seems to have been everywhere and missed nothing. These are
poems, out of the fullness of life, that impress me as being all at
once deep, strange, loving, bountiful, and a joy to read ... The
damp genius of mortality presides." -Stanley Kunitz
"A highly original poet." -John Ashbery
