In a frenzied world, Dan Gerber's poetry offers a deep breath and a reflective presence. Drawing on eight previous collections and including a book-length selection of new work, this book is a retrospective closely attuned to the natural world. Here you'll find the influence of Zen Buddhism, English Romanticism, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Wallace Stevens. Pastoral and expansive, Gerber's explorations point again and again to the universe just outside our windows - and to the mysterious vastness within.
Dan Gerber's poetry was featured in the Wildling Museum's 2020 "Starry Nights" exhibit.
