"In a poetic generation that has frequently settled for small answers, Heller's work insists upon the largest questions." --Rain Taxi

"Over the past half century, Michael Heller has quietly but emphatically established himself as one of the most masterful poets of a post-Objectivist tradition--indeed, as one of the most thoughtful, lyrical, and philosophically profound of contemporary American poets." --Mark Scroggins

"To conceive otherwise, ' says Michael Heller, is the poet's essential task. No matter if the poem is brief or extended, the line long or short, the setting Manhattan or the Colorado Rockies, a lost Bialystok or an imagined Tibet - what arises from the page is an action of mind, an asking, questing trajectory, tracked with uncanny surety by movement of the poetic line. This is no language-locked adventure, but an impassioned, ethical listening to the mind-and the world-at work in words." -Susan Tichy "Tone perfect poems - the tone, the scale, note by note, interval by interval - attack on the 'gods of ennui and loneliness.'" -George Oppen
