Urbane and cosmopolitan, Stanley Moss' poems are the work of a writer once described as 'a citizen of the world, both past and present, one who seems to have been everywhere and missed nothing'. In strong lyrics and searching narratives he explores the cultural and spiritual faultlines of our time. As Peter Reading put it, 'The mixture is rich and the erudition worn lightly. What is most convincingly conveyed is a care for humanity'.
Stanley Moss was born in 1925. His previous collections are 'The Wrong Angel' (1969), 'Skull of Adam' (1975) and 'The Intelligence of Clouds' (1989), all published by Anvil. He is the editor and publisher of The Sheep Meadow Press, and makes his living as a dealer in old master paintings. He lives in Riverdale on Hudson, New York.
