Blood Song is the first full-length collection by poet Michael Schmeltzer.

Praise for Blood Song:


There is a radical nostalgia at the heart of Blood Song, a nostalgia that recovers the wounds of experience and brings it to a rich, imaginative culmination. In this way, the book’s title is profoundly apt: on the one hand, Michael Schmeltzer’s poems are about blood and the tragic consciousness that is the result of our being in time; on the other hand, the poems are about song, the reconciling artfulness that is the source of the best poetry. As one of Schmeltzer’s canny speakers says, "I know / better. I’m no better." Equally unsettling and ravishing, Blood Song is a terrific debut. — Rick Barot author of Chord
