By Richard O. Moore
The poems in Writing the Silences characterize greater than 60 years of Richard O. Moore’s paintings as a poet. chosen from seven full-length manuscripts written among 1946 and 2008, those poems mirror not just Moore’s position in literary history—he is the final of his new release of the mythical crew of San Francisco Renaissance poets—but additionally his reemergence into today’s literary international after a major profession as a filmmaker and manufacturer in public radio and tv. Writing the Silences displays Moore’s dedication to freedom of shape, his curiosity in language itself, and his commitment to problems with social justice and ecology.
