Reviews / Endorsements

“No other poet I know writes so beautifully about seasoned love—love within the context of a life-long marriage. In writing about people and the places they share, Michael Miller achieves in his poems a deep sense of emotional integrity. His poems value clarity, understatement, love in the context of its turbulence, and the accuracy of each detail. As a man living in his eighth decade, as a man long married, and as a former Marine, Miller is a poet of the present tense. In his poems, in every present moment, informing one another, death and the possibilities for love tangle around each other.”—Stephen Haven

“I read Michael Miller’s poems with great pleasure in their accurate seeing, their assured phrasing, their true and proportionate feeling.”—Richard Wilbur

MICHAEL MILLER’s poems have appeared widely—The Yale Review, Raritan, The New Republic, The Kenyon Review. He lives in Massachusetts.
