Ruby for Grief

Praise for Burkard's first poetry collection, In a White Light
"Burkard's poetics will be considered new and strange to many readers, though Stevens, Zufosky, and Ashbery were scouts to this light-laden terrain. [His] book is a blessing."

James Cervantes

The work of Michael Burkard has a rich interior quality different from that of any other voice in American poetry. He captures a sense of the mind revising and revealing itself, altering its perceptions.

80 Pages, 5.5 x 8 in.
