Michael Palmer began actively publishing poetry in the 1960s. Two events in the early sixties would prove particularly decisive for his development as a poet. Palmer is the author of twelve full-length books of poetry, including Thread (2011), Company of Moths (2005) (shortlisted for the 2006 Canadian Griffin Poetry Prize), Codes Appearing: Poems 1979-1988 (2001), The Promises of Glass (2000), The Lion Bridge: Selected Poems 1972-1995 (1998), At Passages (1996), Sun (1988). The Promises of Glass, New Directions (New York, New York), 2000. Codes Appearing: Poems, 1979-1988, New Directions (New York, New York), 2001. Michael Palmer's poetry is so unique, & always unsparingly brilliant. This might be the most important book of his career, since it collects so much essential poetry he wrote over such a long period of time, such a major proportion of his life. He's done a lot more different things in his poetry since this book, & in the time span this selection covers. But this book is so important to get to know Michael Palmer, & what he's done to 20th & 21st century poetry. 5 people found this helpful.

I heard Michael Palmer read back when I was studying at Michigan.

The Promises of Glass, Michael Palmer's first new collection since At Passages (ND, '95), is now available as a paperbook. In seven sections this gorgeous new book explores language and the "salt sea of autobiographies". His work also examines what Marjorie Perloff has described as "the absurdist 'displacement by degrees' one experiences in the post-urban wold of late twentieth-century America".
