    1. Rebecca Foster on said:

      Michaels fifth collection of verse is divided into six sections, with several composed of just one long poem As in Somewhere Night Is Falling, many of the poems are built around a repeated phrase here literally every line begins with Somewhere, imagining all the disparate life experiences that are occurring simultaneously around the world Love and loss, art and the sea are recurring topics The repetition makes this rather hypnotic collection pass quickly, but its details have already started to [...]

      There is no world in which I review an Anne Michaels oeuvre and do it justice, but it is, as always, worth so much than its five stars.

      Words of mourning have always beed lodged deeply within Michaels work Take, for example, the dreams of death intermixed with desire in her poem Anna Our last morning together we sat with Anna s family in dark rooms.We watched her mother put a sweater in the coffin.These are endings that bind,love still alive, squirming in the rind of the heart.Later, see her declaration in Correspondences that books are not our memory of the dead, but what the dead remember The relationship between the living an [...]

      All We Saw Written by Anne MichaelsReview written by Diana Iozzia Recently, I ve been really getting back into reading poetry After a great booktuber recommended R.H Sin s books, I read many of them I also decided to read , and then poetry I stumbled upon All We Saw by Anne Michaels This is a very small collection of slightly angsty, slightly confusing, slightly naturalistic poetry I personally tend to read natural, simple, and romantic poetry, so this had a slight step in the right direction I [...]

      I did not enjoy this quite as much as the astounding Skin Divers regardless, it is a very thoughtful poetry book, filled with startling imagery, and beautiful, aching prose.

    7. Eve on said:

      The intricate storytelling through these poems about love and loss make for a tough read Brutal and honest about the joys and blows in the rollercoaster of a relationship as it plays out.Poems to relate and commiserate to.Many thanks to the publishers for allowing me to review this book for them

    8. Mauzi on said:

      I m not much of a poetry person, but I really liked this It felt powerful, and raw it was evocative, and there were a lot in there that stood out to me somewhere night is falling ask aloud are my top picks though.

    9. Maddison on said:

    10. Ali on said:

      Anne Michaels achingly raw and passionate prose ponders the connection between two people A captivating book of poems reflecting on the turbulence of emotion that love evokes Thank you to Bloomsbury Publishing for giving me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
