Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Eric Miller is a rare thing in a literary culture dominated by cynicism and irony: a poet of baroque extravagance, soaring vision, and sonorous rhetoric. In previous collections, this resulted in some of the most electrifying poetry being written today, but also in the occasional spectacular collapse. In The Day in Moss, Miller's third collection, the virtues remain intact, but the flaws of excess are markedly diminished. . .

"Miller has not received the kind of critical attention devoted to poets such as Don McKay, Tim Lilburn, Jan Zwicky, and Dennis Lee, who have written on similar subjects, but his thought is in many ways more nuanced and his writing more engaged and engaging. With the firm establishment of his mature voice in this collection, one hopes that more readers find their way to his work."
