The follow up to The Sentinel, winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize, A.F. Moritz's The New Measures is a bold collection of fiery, passionate, visionary, and fiercely singing new work. These poems make unique music, by turns tender and forceful, terrified and assured, grateful and enraged. They revel in pleasure, and the thirst for more pleasure. And they insist on the hope perhaps paradoxical, perhaps impossible, yet never extinguished for the perfection of a world both natural and human. The New Measures makes fear and grief into prophecy and joy at each turn of phrase. It is a brilliant new work from one of our greatest poets.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The New Measures articulates with great artistry its author's profound concern and abiding love for the human race." -Quill & Quire, starred review

Praise for The Sentinel:
"An ancient voice, mournful like the wind, speaks to itself yet means to be overheard in A. F. Moritz's amazing poems . . . We seem to hear shattered echoes from the Bible, Dante, Petrarch, or Sceve bound up in Maldoror's cruel eloquence."
John Ashbery
