Abstract:

"Infinite Gradation is an astonishing meditation on what art makes of death, and the moral, emotional, and philosophical implications of love and the creative act, especially those creative works that, as George Steiner has said, "make a deposit in the bank of terror." In lines as precise and profound as any Michaels has written, it is also a lyrically compelling praise song to love and the enduring mysteries at the core of existence. Michaels considers the lives of certain artists and writers - Paul Celan, Jack Chambers, Eva Hesse, Etty Hillesum, Nelly Sachs and Claire Wilks - who have made work at the limits of experience, in remarkably different situations. Asking urgent questions, she explores how art might serve as a witness in extremis, and she examines the nature of responsibility, and the form it takes in poetry, fiction and image-making when everything is at stake."--
