Poems: The Weight of Oranges Miner's Pond Skin Divers
In this collection of Michaels's three previous books of poetry, "The Weight of Oranges, " "Miner's Pond, " and "Skin Divers, " we encounter stunning poetic meditations on art, nature, and memory. Lucie Brock-Broido said of the poems in this collection, "They are like imagined lakes on which Michaels navigates with a fluid and moving logic. These lyrical narratives float on their own transparent surfaces with precision, tenderness, liquidity." Indeed, Michaels' language is magically limber, vivid, and stron and the urgency with which her poems are constructed is so forceful that one is drawn into her hauntingly beautiful vision of the world.
