Winner of the Vassar Miller Prize in Poetry, 2005.
Michael White's poetry is unusual for its loving patience in imagining how human predicaments feel. Using a striking variety of measures, his meditations attempt to re-enact the grain of consciousness as it plays out, from elegy to simple joy.
MICHAEL WHITE has published two full-length collections of poetry. His poems have appeared in many magazines and anthologies including The New Republic, The Paris Review, and The Best American Poetry. He holds degrees from the University of Missouri and the University of Utah and teaches at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he lives.
