What People are Saying About This

John Ashbery

"Vibrant, radiant, Michael Schmidt's poetry is steeped in modernist tradition (Yeats and Eliot) and questingly new. The result is a passionate discourse that is at once earthy and numinous, from which "flows that unusual grace which is rooted in muscle, / Which comes from the marrow and lymph, which is divine . . ."

Marilyn Hacker

“Michael Schmidt proves once again that he is first and foremost a poet of stature and breadth. The Resurrection of the Body is a magisterial book, whose reader is riveted to the page by urgent narrative while (like the pilgrim entering the Golden Dome whose creation and destruction form one such narrative) marveling at and savoring the linguistic density, perfection of form and figure, of the poetry.”
