Moore, Thomas Sturge

Moore, Thomas Sturge, 1870–1944, English author. Although his themes were classical and conservative, his poetic technique was innovative. His first volume of poetry, The Vinedresser, appeared in 1899. Later works in verse include Absalam (1903) and Mystery and Tragedy (1930). He wrote several books on art, such as Albrecht Dürer (1905) and Art and Life (1910), and was a wood engraver, especially noted for his bookplate designs.

See his poetical works (4 vol., 1931–33); his correspondence with W. B. Yeats, ed. by U. Bridge (1953); biography by F. L. Gwynn (1951).
