'These are poems, out of the fullness of a life, that impress me as being all at once deep, strange, loving, bountiful, and a joy to read' - Stanley Kunitz'Moss's self-dramatization is balanced by a splendid intelligence, so that his themes (the hidden life, the collapse of religion and culture, and so on) are airborne and not foundered by his rhetoric' - John Fuller
