As editor of the Dial , Moore wielded considerable cultural authority in the world of arts and letters, yet cultural histories of modernist magazines have largely overlooked her editorial influence. Marianne Moore and the Dial Magazine makes visible Moore's contribution to the production of modernism even as it complicates the concept of editorial agency. It explores the public face of the modernist editor, the image of highbrow distinction circulated by the Dial and embodied by the figure of 'Miss Moore'.
Cultures of Modernism
It also examines Moore's editorial practice as a form of modernist 'contractility' drawing on her own poetics to understand more fully the motives underpinning her revisions. In doing so, the book conceptualises editorial labour as a form of creative and critical social practice. After throwing the first pitch for the opening of the Yankees season, she suffered a series of debilitating strokes.
Her legacy continues in Brooklyn through her rare books available in the Pratt Institute Library, her archive in Philadelphia, and her poems about life in the borough throughout the early 20th century. In this book, Victoria Bazin, Senior Lecturer in American Literature at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle, places Marianne Moore in a historical context in order to characterize her poetry as both a product of and challenge to modernity. She also puts Moore in lineage with earlier Pragmatists like William James, exploring her feminist adaptation of the philosophy.
Throughout her life, Marianne Moore wrote a multitude of letters roughly 30, of which have been preserved , writing up to 50 per day to correspondents such as Ezra Pound and T. Eliot, as well as fans and other friends. Her letters illuminate her observations about major historical events, the transition from Victorian to Modernism, and the new arts. This collection of letters, edited by Professor of English at Boston University, Bonnie Costello, is a necessary text in coming to understand not only Marianne Moore as the poet, but also Marianne Moore as a person.

Although it lacks footnotes and consideration of previous literature, Molesworth compiled a basic biography, completely void of quoted poetry, that documents the life of the American poet. This book offers a perspective on Moore that was previously absent: You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
