From a Shore Beyond Water: Selected Poems of Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore
Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore
Hardback, 316 pages
Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore (1940 - 2016) was a trailblazing Muslim American poet whose distinctive voice echoes the Romantics, the Beats, the Surrealists, and the Sufis who articulated the spiritual path he chose and loved.
Sparkling with wit and acuity, yet rich in human tenderness, Moore's poetry takes the reader on a breathtaking adventure into the mystery of existence and our encounter with the Divine in his own brand of "sacred surrealism."
For the first time, a selection of Moore's quintessential poems - including several that are previously unpublished - have been gathered from over 60 manuscripts in this volume, together with an Introduction by Abdul-Rehman Malik, reflections from his daughter Salihah Moore, a biography, and a list of his complete works.
