A Saturday Woman Writer, Marianne Moore.


“I too , dislike it: there are things that are important beyond all this fiddle.

there is in it afterall, a place for the genuine.”

The original Poetry had 29 lines which Marianne Moore excised, retaining only the first three lines. Those three lines are taken from the Faber Collected Marianne Moore.
