Dear friends and colleagues,

I will be reading at the Poetry Project on Wednesday, March 28^th at 8 
PM from /This Constellation Is A Name: Collected Poems 1965-2010/ just 
published by Nightboat

Books.

Some advance notice on /This Constellation Is A Name/:

"Full-throated praise for this remarkable accomplishment, a generous 
tome of over a half century's life and astute consciousness in poetry. 
Michael Heller is one of our best poets and thinkers who has carried 
Oppen's dictum that poetry embodies "precise information on existence" 
forward. His erudition and scope astound: Jewish mysticism finds company 
with Baudelaire and TibetHis modes are various and true, and constellate 
fully realized an experimental/ philosophical/profound Lyric. ---Anne 
Waldman


To conceive otherwise," says Michael Heller, is the poet's essential 
task, to which he has apprenticed himself for nearly fifty years. 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

Reading with me will be Kristin Prevallet the author of /I, Afterlife:An 
Essay/ and other volumes.

The Poetry Project is located in St. Mark's Church at the corner of 2^nd 
Avenue and East Tenth Street in Manhattan (call 212-674-0910 for more 
information).
