Item description for Far-From-Equilibrium Conditions by Michael Lieberman...
Far-From-Equilibrium Conditions, Michael Lieberman's fifth collection of poems, struggles to find meaning in a world unmoored by turmoil and scientific discovery. In one poem, a speaker notes, "I will be assigned as nothing" and then implores that "it be a significant nothing." Lieberman is one of our most gifted poets whose preoccupation with love and desire create a gravity that is its own meaning in our topsy-turvy universe. Many of these poems are set in Lieberman's Houston neighborhood though they move far afield as they search for a coherent vision of the world.
Praise for Leiberman's other works:
A History of the Sweetness of the World (Texas Review Press, Huntsville, TX, 1995): "These poems are animated by a deep rectitude, `the convection that struggle is praise,' and a fiery determination to wrest a gleaming light--a saving remembrance--from the engulfing shadows."--Edward Hirsch
Sojourn at Elmhurst (New Rivers Press, Minneapolis, 1998): "In this brilliant book of linked poems, dualities are described and suffered as `the soul of the poet mediates the transactions of our life on this earth' while `caught in the disorienting whirls in which order can be glimpsed.'"--Hilda Raz, Editor-in-Chief, Prairie Schooner
Remnant (The Sheep Meadow Press, New York, 2002): "In Mike Lieberman's Remnant we encounter two memories: one that's emotional and straightforward, even passionate, almost sentimental--and another one, oblique and sober, the memory of a scientist, a skeptic who believes in research more than affection. The combination is fascinating and rare."--Adam Zagajewski
