Almost Complete Poems by Stanley Moss

By Stanley Moss

Moss is oceanic: his poems upward push, crest, crash, and upward thrust back like waves. His voice echoes the increase of the previous testomony, the fluty trill of Greek mythology, and the gongs of chinese language rituals as he writes approximately love, nature, struggle, oppression, and the miracle of language. He addresses the God of the Jews, of the Christians, and of the Muslims with awe and familiarity, and chants to lesser gods of his personal invention. In each brilliant poem, each track to existence, appealing existence, Moss, by way of turns giddy and sorrowful, expresses a sacred sensuality and an earthy holiness. Or placing it differently: here's a brain working in outdoors, unimpeded through type or compelled thematic concentration, profoundly catholic in viewpoint, straight away obtainable and erudite, unavoidably compelling. All of that is to suggest Moss's skill to take part in and keep watch over completely those poems whereas resisting the impulse to middle himself in them. This differentiates his attractive paintings from a lot modern breast-beating. Moss is an artist who embraces the probabilities of exultation, appreciation, reconciliation, of utmost tenderness. As such he lays down a dedication to a standard, worldly morality towards which all beings gravitate.
