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 &nbspThe coal has taken over, the red coal is burning between us and we are at its mercy as if a power is finally dominatin the two of us; as if we re huddled u watching the black smoke and the ashes as if knowledge is what we needed and no we have that knowledge. Now we have that knowledge.
