Mischa Willett teaches English at Seattle Pacific University. He is the author of the chapbook Lunatic, and now of one full-length poetry collection.
Kevin Craft writes, “Mischa Willett’s Phases takes time in stride. These poems rub shoulders with classical figures and Biblical traditions, stoics, and shepherds and sleep-deprived poets, the better to place the old stories in a contemporary light. I admire the epigrammatic wit, Martial-like in its cutting wryness. If the unexamined life is not worth living, these poems investigate the daily struggle to find one’s place in the bigger picture — ‘like holding one’s breath / to remember the air.'”
