Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Stern’s] style insinuates itself into your consciousness like a catchy tune, so that you find your thoughts echoing its rhythms, bopping from one to another, back and forth, like thought and language doing a jitterbug.” (Frank Wilson - Philadelphia Inquirer)

This was tough to get through and it wasn't even long. I've long been a dedicated fan of Stern's poetry and, of course, still am, but this latest collection is just terrible. It just feels like he's got little left in the tank. The poems here have the patina of wordplay and magic and mystery which characterized Stern's previous work, but with rare exception, there's not much going on beneath that surface which resonates. With the exception of "Frogs," there aren't many poems here which I care to revisit.
