Marianne C. Moore, 1887-1972, American modernist poet. This site is dedicated to postings and conversation about the poet’s work and to gathering available poem texts, essays, and other scholarly materials from internet sources and individuals. Please submit articles, bibliographic references, links, and other useful information.

  1. This web site is such a wonderful gift to the free, public access internet. I only wish more literary scholars were as active in reaching out to the public and sharing their knowledge as Prof. Willis. I catalog credible literary criticism at my open access web site,, and am saddened that for some major writers there is a real paucity of good criticism available to the reader without a university-supplied password. It is inspiring to find a project like this.

  3. Moore and the Golden Ratio.

    Anyone curious about Moore’s interest in snails, nautilus shells and other spirals, might check out images of Pi or the Golden Ratio on google.
    Marianne Moore loves math!
