In The Room Within Moore Moran communicates his affection for the art of poetry by writing in many of its intriguing forms and their beckoning promises. His work has a stylistic range that moves from the traditional to free verse to syllabic ventures—sometimes employing rhyme. Whatever the form, the voice is unmistakably his own.

Praise For The Room Within: Poems…
“Imagine a poet who can deal with the experience of Jack Kerouac but with too much intelligence to limit himself to the road. You don’t have to imagine him. He exists in Moore Moran. Moran has many skills, all of them beautifully bright, and on occasion when he looks into the abyss they take him safely over it.”
