The poems collected in No Tear is Commonplace stage a passionate, curious, and often combative relationship with the world and the forces that shape human life and death.
Stanley Moss's range is wide: his poetry recalls the 'Adirondack wilderness' of childhood summers, imagines a young Christ learning carpentry, reflects on the tragedies of twentieth-century Europe.
What shines through is the poet's commitment to the fullness of human experience in the here-and-now.
