I read more than half of this before giving up, at least for the time being. When Michaels is good, as with a monologue like "Ice House," she is very good, a quieter, less direct counterpart to Richard Howard's fussier monologues. But too many of the poems seem to me to be simply psycho-dramas, a mix of image and direct statement exploring her emotional states. This wears on me very soon.A viral The Weight of Oranges / Miners Pond / Skin Divers: Poems By Anne Michaels Viral Book Prior to her stunning first novel, Fugitive Pieces, Anne Michaels had already won awards and critical acclaim for two books of poetry The Weight of Oranges 1986 , which won the Commonwealth Prize for the Americas, and Miner s Pond 1991 , which received the Canadian Authors Association Award and was short listed for the Governor General s Award and the Trillium Award AlPrior to her stunning first novel, Fugitive Pieces, Anne Michaels had already won awards and critical acclaim for two books of poetry The Weight of Oranges 1986 , which won the Commonwealth Prize for the Americas, and Miner s Pond 1991 , which received the Canadian Authors Association Award and was short listed for the Governor General s Award and the Trillium Award Although they were published separately, these two books, along with Skin Divers, a collection of Michaels s newest work, were written as companion volumes.Poems brings all three books together for the first time, creating for American readers a wonderful introduction to Anne Michaels s poetry Meditative and insightful, powerful and heart moving, these are poems that, as Michael Ondaatje has written, go way beyond games or fashion or politics They represent the human being entire..

Bestseller Ebook The Weight of Oranges / Miners Pond / Skin Divers: Poems So far, I've been very absorbed with her words.Some verses I hardly know what she's talking about, but I get the sense that it's supposed to be very lyrical and such. The poems I liked best are the short ones, the ones with imagery painted with unusual combination of adjectives and interesting mix of metaphors I have to read thrice before fully seeing the image she painted with her words. I like her. (She's...a quirky siren in my head, at least that's how I feel when I read her work. Don't worry if you can't relate, I'm odd.)At times, I get the feeling that I've just been drenched with an intangible rain of words that my senses seem to be heightened just by reading. It's strange. It's addictive.------------My favourite was "Flowers". I even copied it in my notebook.
