Marianne Moore is known for the quality of her poetry rather than the quantity. Her Complete Poems only contains 242 pages and 120 poems. Reception to her work is exemplified by the many awards she won, including the National Book Award for Poetry and Pulitzer Prize in 1951. In addition to poetry, she translated The Fables of La Fontaine in 1954, winning France's Croix de Chavalier des Arts et Lettres. The following year she published a collection of prose essays, Predilections.
