"Stern's bebop poems shimmer and shadow-dance down the page."―Booklist

Following his National Book Award winner, This Time, Gerald Stern further explores history and memory, the casual miracles of relationships, and his irrevocable connection to the natural world. The weight of history and the bouyance of memory, the casual miracles of relationships, and his irrevocable connection to the natural world are some of Gerald Stern's ongoing themes in this new book. The poems in Last Blue range in tone from the joyously unrestrained to the quietly somber. A Stern poem can begin with the majestic cadences of an Old Testament psalm, turn on an almost invisible hinge, and bring into focus the smallest detail. Here is a radiant collection from an essential voice in American poetry.

From the Author:

Gerald Stern says: "Light vs. darkness has always been one of my themes, but now more than ever. Not only is this the root--and metaphor--for all the major religions, but the almost biological frame of reference for humans. With me, it is overwhelming, personal."

About the Author:

Gerald Stern, the author of nineteen poetry collections, has won the National Book Award, the National Jewish Book Award, the Ruth Lilly Prize, the Wallace Stevens Award, the Frost medal, and the Award of Merit (from the American Academy of Arts and Letters), among others. He lives in Lambertville, New Jersey, and New York City.
