The poems in Reinhabited have survived a slow burn through four and a half decades. Though far-ranging in their settings and themes, Michael Daley's New & Selected Poems embody a deep bicoastal commitment through reminiscent descriptions of the New England where he grew up, and through meditations on his adopted home, the Pacific Northwest, where the practice of the art of poetry has sustained him. The spirit of a wanderer praising wilderness, the wind, cloud mass, human community, the hearty lives of plants and animals, rings through these poems. Romance With the Unexpected, a long discursive poem, anchors Reinhabited on the high seas of spiritual awakening.
Michael will also read from his new novel, Telémachus.
Michael Daley is the author of seven books of poetry, several chapbooks, a collection of essays, two books of translation, and a novel. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts and holds an MFA from the University of Washington. A recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Fulbright, Artist Trust and the Seattle Arts Commission, he lives in Anacortes, Washington.
