Stern is a poet of ferocious heart and rasping sweetness. The tone is so unusual and right that if it weren't for Stern's making it manifest and available to us, we'd probably not know enough to miss it. But what a loss it would be! He's that valuable. --William Matthews

Save the last dance : poems by Gerald Stern( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Save the Last Dance, Gerald Stern gives us a collection of his intimately personal - yet universal and surprising - poems. Shorter lyric poems in the first two parts continue the satirical and redemptive vision of his last collection, Everything is Burning, while still carving out new emotional territory. The last part encompasses a long poem called "The Preachers," in which Stern adapts the book of Ecclesiastes as a starting point for a meditation on loss, futility, and emptiness."--Jacket
Odd mercy : poems by Gerald Stern( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of our most acclaimed poets wrestles with the issues - love, hope, memory, faith - that have occupied him "in the second half of my sixth decade on beautiful earth." The centerpiece of Gerald Stern's ninth collection is a long poem titled "Hot Dog" named for a beautiful street woman who lives in and around Tompkins Square Park. Other characters in this poem are St. Augustine, Walt Whitman, Noah, Gerald Stern himself, and a ninety-year-old black preacher from the Midwest. In "Hot Dog," and throughout this collection, Stern examines the long journey towards redemption and justice and the bitter struggle - and battle - over our minds and souls
Everything is burning : poems by Gerald Stern( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his fourteenth collection, Gerald Stern gives us sharp, focused, political - occasionally outrageous - poems that delve deep into their subjects and transform reality. As in previous collections, Stern uses his personal history as a source for his literary songs, but the poems in Everything Is Burning are more ruthless, more honest, in their lack of self-pity and full realization of possibility."--Jacket

"From the National Book Award-winning author of This Time, a new volume of poems that explore the very nature of existence. Divine Nothingness is a meditative reflection on the poet's past and an elegy to love and the experience of the senses in the face of mortality. From the Jersey side of the Delaware River in Lambertville, Gerald Stern explores questions about who and why we are, locating nothingness in the divine and the divine in nothingness"--
