New and Selected Poems
Dan Gerber

Drawing upon eight previous collections and including a book-length selection of new poems, this retrospective tunes its ears and eyes to the natural world and a provenance that includes the influence of English Romanticism, Buddhism, Rilke, and professional race-car driving. Pastoral and expansive, Gerber’s poetry is infatuated with vast ideas and minute occurrences—and sings a transitory existence.

For Particles, Dan Gerber

“Dan Gerber tenderly reels his readers through the ‘beautiful movie’ he calls the passing of time on earth in a language completely unadorned and Zen-like in its quietude. The thing itself carries the weight of these poems, which recall the deep imagery of Vallejo, Neruda and Wright.” —Rain Taxi

“Gerber has a gentle touch and an unaffected, articulate voice that can be smart, funny, wise—sometimes all at the same time.” —
Library Journal

“These are beautiful meditative poems of surprise and wonder fully engaged with the world of experience, which he regards with a sacramental reverence.” —Mark Arendt, awards judge, Society of Midland Authors 2013 Book of the Year Award in Poetry

“[Gerber’s] poetry explores everyday experiences and images, successfully converting them into something unique and magical.” —Library of Michigan

“[Gerber’s] evocations are clearly, simply rendered with an almost Zen-like kind of meditative transcendence.” —Fallon Eagle Standard

“[Gerber] is one of the most adept and accessible of the poets who explore the meaning of humans, relation with earth and existence itself.” —ForeWord
