Location

2008-2010 Delancey Place, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19103, United States

The landmark oeuvre of Marianne Moore, one of the major inventors of poetic modernism, has had no straight path from beginning to end; until now, there has been no good vantage point from which to see the body of her remarkable work as a whole. New Collected Poems offers an answer to the question of how to represent the work of a poet so skillful and singular, giving a portrait of the range of her voice and of the modernist culture she helped create.

About the Speaker

Heather Cass White is the editor of two previous collections of Marianne Moore’s poetry, A-Quiver with Significance: Marianne Moore, 1932–1936 (2008), and Adversity & Grace: Marianne Moore, 1936–1941 (2012). She is Professor of English at the University of Alabama.
