“Merrill Moore remains the most prolific sonneteer in English – The New Yorker once estimated his output at 50,000 ‘fourteeners’. As this selection makes clear, the best of these are extremely fine and original – memorable, well-turned, witty, strange. For his obsessive sifting and valuable act of recovery, the editor David R. Slavitt deserves a prize, but the greatest reward for his efforts is, delightfully, ours.” – David Yezzi, Birds of the Air
“Merrill Moore deserves to be placed much higher on Parnassus than he is. English poets have much to learn from him, perhaps even more than the Americans. His poetry is a social space, intimate and public at the same time, overheard and most distinctly heard.” – Michael Schmidt, PN Review
"I am glad the book exists as I’ve now been introduced to the truly eccentric life of Merrill Moore, and all of that credit must go to Slavitt and Little Island Press for bringing Moore back into public consciousness." – Mike James, Contemporary Small Press
