The End of Michelangelo

Dan Gerber 

Forthcoming October 2022

Reading the poetry of Dan Gerber, we are summoned to the larger truth: We are alive on a wondrous planet afflicted by human misuse. As T.H. White suggests, we can’t save the earth if we don’t savor it. In these poems, there is plenty to savor—the beauty of a face, the light falling on it—and plenty of terror, loss, and dread. The End of Michelangelo is the product of the fundamental human desire to make a Thing to hold experience even when we are no longer ourselves. Dan Gerber writes with a mind made new again, in poetry revivified by a late-life perspective.
