  • Comments dearest seelight, i did know this. i think barbara anderson might have told this story back in college (or was it tenney nathanson?), but it heard it a bunch of times at iowa, too. i think it's detailed in one of the older moore bios? but yes, it's a great story. and to the best of my knowledge, it's true. and speaking of anglo-american modernists, did you hear about what happened when wallace stevens met ernest hemmingway in key west? that's kind of a great story, too, but in the opposite way in which the moore-ford story is great.
