  • The Battlefield Where The Moon Says I Love You is a 15,283-line epic poem by the poet Frank Stanford. First published in 1977 as a 542-page book, the poem is visually characterized by its absence of stanzas and punctuation. Stanford worked on the manuscript for many years prior to its publication — a joint-publication by Mill Mountain Press and Lost Roads — in 1977. After being out of print for several years, the book was republished by Lost Roads in 2000; this second, corrected edition — 383 pages, equipped with line numbers — is in print, having been reprinted by the press in 2008. A common misconception is that the 15,283-line poem was actually over 21,000 lines in the first edition, but the seemingly longer line count in the 1977 edition is merely resultant of the paper's octavo size, effecting many lengthy lines to be necessarily broken with indents employed.
