Poems: The Weight of Oranges, Miner's Pond, Skin Divers by Anne Michaels ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
A brilliant debut. Superficially there is nothing out of the ordinary about this work; verse forms are familiar (nothing avant garde in form or content) and content is mostly narrative, with a number of poems dealing with painters and poets (breughel, Svetaeva, Mandelstam) but the language is magical and the urgency with which the poems are constructed is so forceful that one is pulled up abruptly time after time by some marvellous phrase or insight.
