Endorsements & Reviews

“Stern is one of those rare poetic souls who makes it almost impossible to remember what our world was like before his poetry came to exalt it.” — C. K. Williams

“Gerald Stern comes on like a crazy river. . . . Stern's world is that reckless, his ideas that large, his images that passionate, his heart that determined.” — Dionisio D. Martinez, Organica

“[I] turn to Stern's poetry because he's so wholehearted in his embrace of the paradoxical nature of life, because of the ebullient way his poems praise the foolishness and grace of our mortal dance.” — Gail Mazur, Boston Sunday Globe
