Very Selected: Michael Schmidt
‘Vibrant, radiant… steeped in modernist tradition (Yeats and Eliot) and questingly new… a passionate discourse that is at once earthy and numinous’
– John Ashberry
This Very Selected pamphlet brings together the best poetry by Michael Schmidt, as part of The Poetry Business’ Very Selected collection.
A phrase of Dryden’s Virgil
All was the night’s he wrote. All
Was the night’s. I cannot add
A word. i go
Along a gravel path
Between shrubs sick with rose scent
And on the pool a shimmering bough of starlight
Marks the easy entrance to the dark.
