Summary

"Gerald Stern is not only one of our. nation's finest poets but one of our nation's most eloquent and important essayists. His newest book, Stealing History, is filled with the usual wisdom, lucid, and penetrating prose, humor├╣often ribald├╣and radical critique.of power that his admirers,! myself among them, cherish. His voice slices with wit, charm, and intelligence through the cant and noise of modern culture. I gave away over a dozen copies of his last book of prose, What I Can't Bear Losing, to friends and am set to do the same with, this one." '
