"Entire Dilemma" is Michael Burkhard's seventh collection of poetry and his first book since W.W. Norton published "My Secret Boat (A Notebook of Prose and Poems)" in 1990. He has received a Whiting Writers' Award, the Poetry Society of America's Alice Fay di Castagnola Award, and two grants from both the New York State Foundation for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. He has taught at various colleges and universities, most recently the University of Louisville, LeMoyne College, and Syracuse University.

Burkard returns us to a primary strangeness. . . . ÝHe¨ is invested in a metaphysics of relationship, probing into how we treat each other (and hence ourselves). . . . His is an honest introspection mapping out hearts that ever slide."-"Harvard Review"
