On a rare visit to the UK, Stanley Moss will be reading from his latest book, Almost Complete Poems, the definitive collection from this American master just out on Carcanet Press, who are organising this event.

Stanley Moss is the author of The Skull of Adam (1979), The Intelligence of Clouds (1989), Asleep in the Garden (1997), A History of Color (2003), New and Selected Poems (2006), Rejoicing (2009), God Breaketh Not All Men’s Hearts Alike (2011) and Almost Complete Poems (2016). Not much, then.

In 1977, he founded Sheep Meadow Press, a non-profit press devoted to poetry, with a particular focus on international poets in translation. In his role as editor, Stanley has launched the careers of many key voices, including Stanley Kunitz, Hayden Carruth, F.T. Prince, Christopher Middleton and Willis Barnstone.

Tickets are free but advanced booking is highly recommended.
