Dr. Moore's latest collection of sonnets can be reviewed by repeating comments that have been made about the author's previous sonnets. The sonnets have been described on various occasions as "magnificent"; as expressing "humor and poignancy" and making for "diverting reading"; as "providing acute insight expressed with wit"; as being "pithy, caustic, comic, tender, penetrating, sad, grim, witty, serious"; and as inviting the reader to "start reading and stop if you can." It can only be added, "For the reader who may have an inhibition, a quick cure resides in this edition."
