I read Michael Miller’s poems with great pleasure in their accurate seeing, their assured phrasing, their true and proportionate feeling.

- Richard Wilbur


I like these very much indeed – such a relief to feel that someone knows what he’s doing.

- James Merrill


Original and lovely.

- Thom Gunn


Very promising – in fact full of achievement.  Michael Miller is able to express his experiences, his feelings, his longings, very sensuously and accurately.

- Stephen Spender
