James McMichael, Poet

Mr. McMichael has written six books of poems and two books of nonfiction. He is best known for his long poem “Four Good Things” (1980), an autobiographical meditation on life, death and real-estate, set in southern California, where he makes his home. Of Mr. McMichael’s poetry, poet and Princeton Creative Writing Program faculty member C.K. Williams has said: “James McMichael has for many years been one of our most innovative poets, with a broad thematic range, and a passionate commitment to the truths of life and art. His poems are at once as capacious as novels, formally inventive, and emotionally profound.”
