Book Launch: This Constellation Is A Name: Collected Poems by Michael Heller
Please join Nightboat Books to celebrate the publication of This Constellation Is A Name: Collected Poems, 1965-2010, by Michael Heller.
A landmark volume gathering 45 years of work by one of our leading poets.
From his early spare poems written in Spain to the recent ruminative work exploring language, tradition (often Jewish and diasporic) and the self, this book collects four decades of Michael Heller’s “tone perfect poems” as George Oppen described them. Enriched with the detailed landscapes of the phenomenal world and mind, This Constellation Is a Name confirms Michael Heller’s place at the forefront of contemporary American poetry.
This event is made possible through the Poets House Literary Partners Program
