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.

MICHAEL HELLER is a poet, essayist, and critic. He is the author of twenty books, including Living Root: A Memoir, Exigent Futures: New and Selected Poems and Conviction’s Net of Branches, his award-winning study of the Objectivist poets. He lives in New York City.
