"Prior to her first novel, Fugitive Pieces, Anne Michaels had already won awards and critical acclaim for two books of poetry: The Weight of Oranges (1986), which won the Commonwealth Prize for the Americas, and Miner's Pond (1991), which received the Canadian Authors Association Award and was short-listed for the Governor General's Award and the Trillium Award. Although they were published separately, these two books, along with Skin Divers, a collection of Michaels's newest work, were written as companion volumes." "Poems brings all three books together for the first time, creating for American readers a wonderful introduction to Anne Michaels's poetry. Meditative and insightful, powerful and heart-moving, these are poems that, as Michael Ondaatje has written, "go way beyond games or fashion or politics ... They represent the human being entire.""--BOOK JACKET

Mit Blumen, mit der Pflege des mütterlichen Gartens, hält Jean die Erinnerung an ihre früh verstorbene Mutter wach. Durch Blumen, das Sammeln von Pflanzen in einem Landstrich, der bald geflutet werden wird, lernt sie Avery kennen, ihren zukünftigen Mann. Und als Jean später den Faden verliert in ihrem Leben - weil sie einen Jungen nicht retten konnte in Ägypten, weil ihr Kind tot zur Welt kam, und weil sie sich die Schuld gibt für beides, läuft sie nachts durch Toronto und drückt überall Pflanzensamen in die Erde der Stadt. Sie trifft dabei auf den Höhlenmaler Lucjan, der die Vernichtung Warschaus überlebt hat und ihr nun davon erzählt und von den Blumen zwischen den Trümmern
Poems: The Weight of Oranges, Miner's Pond, Skin Divers by Anne Michaels ( Book )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member 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
