One of America's foremost literary figures, Moore has been considered by feminist critics to be a singular and important female poetic voice. She is known for creating verse characterized by loose rhythms, carefully chosen words, close attention to descriptive detail, and acute observation of human character. Her poems often reflect her preoccupation with the relationships between the common and the uncommon; advocate discipline in both art and life; and espouse virtues of restraint, modesty, and humor. She frequently used animals as a central image to emphasize themes of independence, honesty, and the integration of art and nature.
