Save the Last Dance : Poems Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


In Save the Last Dance, Gerald Stern gives us a stunning collection of his intimately personal-yet always universal, and always surprising-poems, rich with humor and insight.

Shorter lyric poems in the first two parts continue the satirical and often redemptive vision of his last collection, Everything Is Burning, while never failing to carve out new emotional territory.

In the third part, a long poem called "The Preacher," Stern takes the book of Ecclesiastes as a starting point for a meditation on loss, futility, and emptiness, represented here by the concept of a "hole" that resurfaces throughout.
