About this title

Synopsis:

From the author of "Fugitive Pieces", this work provides a collection of poems, meditations on how love changes in order to survive and how we move from 'obsolete science' to new perceptions.

From the Inside Flap:

Skin Divers is award-winning writer Anne Michaels? dazzling third book of poems. These poems develop the concern with love, transience, and memory evident in her earlier work, and at the same time signal a definitive turning point towards a new thematic landscape.

Michaels is a writer whose thoughts take shape in sensuous images, verbal music, and sinuous lines. Her short lyrics, like the longer monologues based on the lives of historical figures, explore an inner world fluid with feeling and memory. They reveal complex climates of emotion and sentiment, yet remain unsparing and unsentimental. As in the best poetry of our time, the luminous calm at the heart of her vision also registers the pressure of the darkness in our lives that has been momentarily withstood.

These powerful poems, tense with desire and ?divided longings,? remind us that Anne Michaels is among the most original poets of her generation.
