What inspired you to write this Chapbook/Book? What else should we know about it? Or just add the Blurb.

“Daniel Edward Moore writes with the passion and internal conflict of a classic literary anti-hero, a difficult task for a collection of poems. He pulls it off with a style uniquely his, blending the romantic with the philosophical, the decadent with the metaphysical, as he searches for connections and balance between the sacred and profane. Waxing the Dents is less like reading a book and more like sitting in the audience for a performance of Beethoven’s 9th. It begins with a handful of lovely romantic musings, then builds in intensity until it’s raging furiously, shaking its lyrical fist at the sky. By the time I finished this book, I found myself trembling, perhaps a little exhausted. It’s powerful writing from a skilled craftsman.”

            —Ace Boggess, author of The Prisoners and I Have Lost the Art of Dreaming It So

What was your journey to publication like?

It took three years to write and I was fortunate to have had over 2/3 of the poems published

before it was taken.
