from the publisher
A. F. Moritz’s poems integrate nature and enduring myth with our inner life so movingly, so convincingly, that they almost seem to be our own thoughts. His direct and intimate tone, and the power, calm, and clarity of his expression, are solid foundations for an exhilarating breadth and range of imagination.
“Some of the poems are like fables; some like tableaux — motionless, full of portent, with the gravity and power of myth. Still others are as riveting as still lifes by an old master. I found them, literally, entrancing.” — P.K. Page
