Marianne Moore: “Flies in Amber”
Marianne Moore wrote dozens of poems about animals, once referring to them as her “animiles” (which “means literally ‘pertaining to animals,’ ” writes Margaret Holley, “but it is also loosely perhaps an echo of something like ‘Anglophile,’ the form of affinity” ). Composed throughout her career, the poems appear copiously amid her oeuvre with no particular ordering or arrangement.
