Poetry. "These new poems are formally brilliant, playfully colloquial, and often very moving. Away from the fads and short-lived literary movements, Jerry Harp is at once technically masterful and deeply thoughtful" -- Kevin Prufer. Jerry Harp is the co-winner of the 2004 Robert McGovern Publication Prize.

Review:

REVIEWS: "I have long been a fan of Jerry Harp's poetry, but in Gatherings he outdoes himself. These new poems are formally brilliant, playfully colloquial, and often very moving. I rarely come across a poet with such startling gifts, a poet who fuses great musical ability and intelligence with such facility. Away from the fads and short-lived literary movements, Jerry Harp is at once technically masterful and deeply thoughtful. He is one of the very best young poets at work today." -Kevin Prufer "How wonderful, after so many theme-driven books of poetry, to read a real collection, a book in which every poem casts its own shadow. Jerry Harp is a poet of astonishing range, and the obsessions of Gatherings emerge quietly in poems through wistful, unsettling images, in lines that are tautly metrical or spun far across the page, as if to see what they might gather." -Janet McAdams
