CONVERSE
I own over 400 books of poetry and yet I find myself going back again and again to the amazing poetry of Anne Michaels. She takes language and transforms it into beauty and art. My favorite poem, "What the Light Teaches" is a both a celebration of and a prayer to life. Just this one verse is worth the price of the book:

"The river is a loose tongue,
a folk song. At night we go down to listen.
Stars like sparks from a bonfire.
We take off what we are,
and step into the moon."

I highly recommend this book because it contains poems from two of her best books, "The Weight of Oranges" and "Miner's Pond". I have underlined passages in almost every poem. To me, there is no greater joy than discovering a new poet who touches your soul and stirs parts of you that you never knew existed. I've not read her novel, but I can say her poetry is astonishing and miraculous.
Leceri
The Weight of Oranges/ Miner's Pond by Anne Michaels is so full of wonderful words it is impossible to describe -- but Michaels has no problem with descriptions at all. Every word paints a canvas and brings forth expressions and impressions with every nuance and descriptive interaction. It is easy to slip into the spell of her words and experience every moment with her.

After I read her novel I couldn't wait to read her poetry. The novel was exquisitely poetic
and wonderful. The poetry, which I expected to be even better, was not.

This book is so inspiring and wonderful. Michaels possesses all the qualities of an amazing poet, and her work really shines through in this collection. She is descriptive and sensitive, and it is certainly a must read.
