"Songlines in Michaeltree" is the long-awaited collected poems - with the sparkling addition of some new ones - of one of America's most revered poets. Hailed by critics as a distinctive and powerful presence in contemporary American poetry, Michael S. Harper is an artist and a truth teller who tempers his astonishing technical virtuosity with a compassionate and healing vision. A keen observer and a potent commentator, Harper calls a complacent society vigorously to account while cradling the wounded and remembering the lost. Calling Harper "one of the finest poets of our time ...and one of the most human and humane", George Cuomo of the San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle observed, "Harper's poetry has drawn its vitality from the incredible energy of his language and the honesty of his perceptions". "Songlines in Michaeltree" is a magnificent celebration of Harper's continuing, unstinting gifts.
