Description
(Nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award) Although Marianne Moore's poetry was highly praised by T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, and although her Collected Poems was honored with the 1952 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, the woman herself has remained something of an enigma. In this National Book Critics Circle–nominated biography—which features 16 pages of photographs—Linda Leavell draws upon Moore's personal archives and correspondence to depict a modernist icon who was a political conservative, a passionate fan of boxing, and a bachelorette who spent most of her adult life living with and caring for her mother.

"[Moore] transformed herself from a poet for the elite into a poet for the masses and from Brooklyn recluse into beloved performer.... [This biography] captures well the strange and entrancing drama of Marianne's family life."—Wall Street Journal
