Texte du rabat

Award-winning poet Michael Collier' s elegiac fifth collection is haunted by spectral figures and a strange, vivid chorus of birds: from a consideration of the weight of sparrows to a cardinal that crashes into his window to a gathering of turkey vultures, Collier engages birds as myth makers and lively messengers carrying memories from lost friends. Collier juxtaposes moments of quotidian revelation, such as waking to the laughing sounds of birdsong, with the drama of Greek tragedy, taking on voices from Medea. The mystery of death and the vital absence it creates are the real subjects of the book. Birds are the resurrectionists, writes Collier in the opening poem, " Birds Appearing in a Dream."
