Description: Michael Heller is widely seen not only as the principal theorist and critic of the Objectivists poetic tradition but as its principal practitioner in his generation. The Objectivists include some of the most distinguished American poets -- George Oppen, Carl Rakosi, and others. Heller, as critic Burt Kimmelman remarked in an essay on the poet for the Dictionary of Literary Biography, "is faithful to the Objectivist desire for a poetry deriving from the senses, from fact and directness".

But Heller's work does not stop there. As Kimmelman says, he "aspires to a more complex aesthetic", writing "poems...marked by an acute and highly original sensitivity to contemporary concerns about voice, language, history and knowledge".As a result, Heller is a poet followed with great attention by critics and readers; he is not only a principal link to the American poetic past but one of the great poetic innovators in the present.

Heller's work, wrote Oppen, is "tone perfect". Heller's books, concludes Norman Finkelstein, "will ... endure".
