Item description for Pennsylvania Collection Agency (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by Michael Burkard...

Pennsylvania Collection Agency, a new book from Michael Burkard, is comprised of poems written in 1986 but withheld from publication until now. This volume utilizes the unifying structure of a single year in the poet's life as an organizing principle. Burkard has been quietly accumulating one of the most fascinating verse biographies we have, and in this book we visit old territories in unexpectedly candid poems about alcoholism, beauty, and the poet's childhood. Burkard further emblazons the arc of theme and language that is beginning to coalesce into one of the most distinguishable formal and emotional landscapes in contemporary poetry. Idiosyncratic as always, this dazzling writer is never less than entertaining, but as poem in placed over poem, like some celestial template, one begins to feel the presence of much larger truths. All-encompassing, incendiary, immediate, and with a remarkable lyric gift, Burkard leads us to a place under the stars---as if for the first time---and what we find overhead is sublime.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pennsylvania Collection Agency (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?

One of Burkard's best!  Apr 17, 2001
It is a shame that such a beautiful book is listed by this site with such carelessness. Myronn Hardy did not co-author this book, and Burkard's name is spelled incorrectly. There are also electronic transmission errors in the text of the book description, such as apostrophes being replaced by question marks. this site should get its act together
