Writing a Life: The Poetry of Jim Moore

Teaching poetry while in prison, being present at an airport bomb explosion, and traveling internationally have shaped Jim Moore as a writer and pivotal figure on Minnesota’s poetry scene for more than four decades.

Moore, who observes that “Writing is filled with self-doubt for me, but a doubt shot through sometimes with ecstasy,” contains the soul of a poet whose language is distinctly human and direct.
