Early Collected Poems by Stern, Gerald
Early Collected Poems: 1965-1992
by Stern, Gerald
 
“Stern’s unadorned craftsmanship has few rivals in American letters.”—Philadelphia Inquirer Early Collected Poems gathers the poems from the first six books of Gerald Stern’s body of work. A master poet, Stern has sought new language for the overlooked, neglected, and unseen facets of human experience. Whether writing about modern poets, Hebrew prophets, death, war, or love, “Stern’s literary songs are sharp, surprising, and unerring in their delivery” (Ploughshares, Editor’s Choice).

from “The Red Coal”
   The coal has taken over, the red coal

   is burning between us and we are at its mercy—
   as if a power is finally dominating
   the two of us; as if we’re huddled up

   watching the black smoke and the ashes;
   as if knowledge is what we needed and now
   we have that knowledge. Now we have that knowledge.
