Price: $18.00

Port Townsend, WA: Copper Canyon (2017)

Paperback Original.

Zen-like attention—to nature and the human heart—is the through-line in Particles, the life-work of a rare American poet. "Gerber has a gentle touch and an unaffected, articulate voice that can be smart, funny, wise—sometimes all at the same time."—Library Journal

"[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

Into a frenzied world that hurtles ever faster somewhere, Dan Gerber's poetry offers a necessary and reflective presence. Drawing upon eight previous collections, and including a book-length selection of new poems, this retrospective tunes its senses to the natural world and a provenance that includes the influence of Buddhism, English Romanticism, and a deep reading of Rainer Maria Rilke's oeuvre. Pastoral and expansive, Gerber's poetry is concerned with the universe just outside each of our windows—the immediately viewable landscape in front of us and the mysterious vastness beyond.
