About Museum of Snow:

"What does snow feel like, falling in the heart? Reading the poems in Claire Millikin's Museum of Snow offers an excavation of that gnosis. The collection is itself a museum (Gk mouseion: place of study, library, or museum, school of art or poetry) and its curator possesses what Wallace Stevens calls a mind of winter... In poems as closely keyed, lucid, stark, and secretive as black and white photographs, Millikin explores the transgressive, hunger-whetted, half-wild places that house us and that we house."
