Satirical, funny, poignant and pointed, Moss directs his wit at subjects including the Orkneys and his Olivetti typewriter, devaluation and death, moths and mothers, and poets and poetry workshops. This selection of Moss' work spans 20 years of writing from 1977-1997. Moss says he has always written poetry inspired by the poets he had learnt at school. When he began writing he had never read T. S. Eliot or Ezra Pound, a point he makes with a certain pride. But his work isn't a Lost World that has somehow avoided modernist influences. Another signature of his work is its lyricism, but combined with a 'dry-eyed', modern sensibility that subverts sentiment and posturing.
