The Company Of Moths

Poetry by Michael Palmer

Michael Palmer has been acclaimed “exemplarily radical” (John Ashbery) and “one of America’s most important poets… startlingly lyrical and visceral” (The Harvard Review). His new book, Company of Moths––a collection in four parts, “Stone,” “Scale,” “Company of Moths,” and “Dream”––is beautiful and fierce: “bright archive, sad merriment,” “question pursuing question.” Palmer in our dark times asks, “How will you now read in the dark?” Winner of the Shelley Memorial Prize and translated into over twenty-five languages, Michael Palmer was born in New York City in 1943 and lives in San Francisco, California.

Michael Palmer

Contemporary American Poet

The most influential avant-gardist working, and perhaps the greatest poet of his generation … [Palmer's] genius is for making the world strange again.
The Village Voice
Always in Palmer one gets the feeling of the language trying to get outside by undoing itself, by unraveling the complex fabric of language to feel its threads, yes, but also to see through it to what is behind and beyond it … A singular achievement.
