Thomas Moult

Thomas Moult

Thomas Moult (1893-1974) was a versatile English journalist and writer, and one of the Georgian poets. He is known for his annual anthologies "Best Poems of the Year", 1922 to 1943, which were popular verse selections taken from periodicals on both sides of the Atlantic.


He was born in Derbyshire. He wrote much newspaper criticism, on music and drama and as a book reviewer; and on sport in the popular press.

He founded a magazine "Voices" for young writers, in 1919, publishing A. E. Coppard, Louis Golding, F. V. Branford, and Neville Cardus. It has been described as "eminently uncontroversial" [Robert H. Ross, "The Georgian Revolt", p. 203.] .


Moult's daughter Joy was the first wife of psychologist Oliver Zangwill.
