Episode 27: Marianne Moore, Poetry

Poetry For All

In this episode, we read and discuss the influential modernist poet Marianne Moore and her witty, wonderful poem called "Poetry," a classic ars poetica (a poem about writing poetry). This poem has gone through many different editions. We take an earlier, longer version and ask how it participated in the modernist practice of "making it new" in the early 1900s. Marianne Moore was a technical master with widespread influence who was at the very center of American modernism -- friends with William Carlos Williams (see episode 25), Ezra Pound, H.D., and many others, as well as a mentor to Elizabeth Bishop (who we'll have an episode on soon!). An ardent Presbyterian who wore a cape and tri-cornered hat and who carefully curated her public image, Marianne Moore became a sought-after celebrity in her own day.

Marianne Moore, "The Jerboa"

Into a Monstrous Vermin Transformed

Raymond L. Ditmars, a friend of Marianne Moore, was the curator of the New York Zoological Garden for many years.  Moore said that she learned about the hopping desert rodent, the jerboa, from Ditmars' 1931 book, Strange Animals I have Known; in it, he writes, "There are remarkable forms of adaptation.  There are little rats called jerboas which run on long hind-legs as thin as a match.  The forelimbs are mere tiny hands.  They are fleet and coloured like the sand.  They have a long balancing tail, with decorative pad of black and white fur at the tip.  This tip is, in fact, more than decorative, as the pad is like a little snow-shoe to keep the end from sinking in the sand.  The tail is carried in upward curve when the creatures run.  When they stop it is rested on the ground so that the whole body is little tripod.  The feet have furry pads to prevent their becoming imbedded in the soft sand.  I kept one for several years, not giving it a drop of water.  It fed on dry corn and loved stems of dry grass.  The only moisture it had came from occasional bits of greens, of which it was not over fond."

Marianne Moore, "Poetry"

Lyric Life

What more could anyone say about Moore's poetry? Especially about this poem, the bane of Literature 101--and a poem that's too often presented as far simpler than it is. Even the famous "definition" of poetry--"imaginary gardens with real toads in them"--isn't as obvious as it first seems. Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as I work my way through this seductive, elliptical poem by one of the United States' best modernist poets.

¿Qué son los años? (Marianne Moore, en la voz de Antonia Zegers)

Orden de traslado

¿Cuál es nuestra inocencia? ¿Cuál nuestra culpa? Todos están desnudos, nadie a salvo. ¿Y de dónde viene el coraje: la pregunta sin respuesta, la duda decidida –que llama muda, sorda escucha– que en la desgracia y en la muerte incluso alienta a los demás y en su derrota insta al alma a que sea fuerte? Ve hondo y es feliz el que consiente a la mortalidad y en ese cautiverio se levanta sobre sí mismo como el mar sobre el abismo, luchando por ser libre e incapaz de serlo, en su renuncia encuentra su vigencia. El de opiniones firmes, así vive. El propio pájaro, que crece con su canto, al erguirse se arma de valor. Aunque está preso, su poderoso canto dice qué humilde es la satisfacción, la alegría, qué pura. Eso es la mortalidad. La eternidad es eso.
