R' Moshe Feinstein - a poet?

Calling all jew-nerds. Calling all jew-nerds. Found this perplexing line in Wikipedia:

Abulafia’s life inspired a series of literary works such as poems by Ivan Goll, Moses Feinstein and Nathaniel Tarn


Does anyone know what poetry R' Feinstein wrote about Abraham Abulafia?

It's a different Moses Feinstein.

See here.

Wikipedia isn't wrong. Two people are allowed to have the same name!

As an aside, I prefer "geek," not "nerd."

Thanks uber-jew-geek!

The problem is that the hyperlink in Wikipedia is pointing to R'MF.

That's Wikipedia for you. The other Moses Feinstein was a Hebraist. He and Rav Moshe Feinsten were friendly to each other. They used to get each others mail by accident and would return it to the proper Moses Feinstein.

By the way forget about fixing the article. You could be fighting a whole battle. Just use Wikipedia for the links or when it conforms to the truth.
