Synopsis: Michael Palmer has bee hailed by John Ashbery as exemplarily radical and by The Village Voice as the most influential avant-gardist working, and perhaps the greatest poet of his generation. His new book, Company of Moths--a collection in four parts, Stone, Scale, Company of Moths, and Dream -- is beautiful, and fierce: bright archive, sad merriment, question pursuing question. Palmer, in this new volume for our darkest times, asks, How will you now read in the dark?
