Willett Publishes Book of Poems

Annotated Bibliography Article February 3rd, 2017 § 0

Mischa Willett’s Phases is due to be published in March as part of the Poiema Poetry Series from Cascade Books in Eugene, OR.   Dr. Willett, a member of the English Department faculty, currently teaches a variety of courses, following on a long history of teaching at various institutions here and abroad.

College Application Essay Writing Help Learning Says Willett, “I was attracted to the press [Cascade Books] because of their roster of poets I admire including Luci Shaw, Jill Peláez Baumgaertner, Brad Davis, Robert Siegel, Paul Mariani, and others.

“Phases pretends to be a collection of biblically-informed, formally-challenging poems based on the areas of lunar geography mapped out by Galileo, though really it’s about the various phases in a person’s life and how useful maps in general can be in tracking and categorizing them–which makes it about reflections, then, and, therefore, about the moon.”

Willett’s scholarly essays have been published in RaVoN, Victoriographies, and Romantic Circles, among other places.

This summer, Dr. Willett will be assisting Dr. Jennifer Maier on the English Department’s Creative Writing in Rome study-abroad trip.

Congratulations, Mischa, on the publication!
