By Stanley Moss

Moss is oceanic: his poems upward thrust, crest, crash, and upward thrust back like waves. His voice echoes the increase of the previous testomony, the fluty trill of Greek mythology, and the gongs of chinese language rituals as he writes approximately love, nature, conflict, oppression, and the miracle of language. He addresses the God of the Jews, of the Christians, and of the Muslims with awe and familiarity, and chants to lesser gods of his personal invention. In each impressive poem, each track to lifestyles, attractive existence, Moss, by means of turns giddy and sorrowful, expresses a sacred sensuality and an earthy holiness. Or placing it differently: here's a brain working in outside, unimpeded via style or pressured thematic concentration, profoundly catholic in point of view, right away obtainable and erudite, necessarily compelling. All of that's to suggest Moss's skill to take part in and keep watch over completely those poems whereas resisting the impulse to heart himself in them. This differentiates his attractive paintings from a lot modern breast-beating. Moss is an artist who embraces the probabilities of exultation, appreciation, reconciliation, of utmost tenderness. As such he lays down a dedication to a typical, worldly morality towards which all beings gravitate.
