Reviews / Endorsements

“From Joyce to Morrison, the great accomplishment of the twentieth century was to establish what a Writer is. Not many are left, but Berg is squarely among them.”—Hayden Carruth

“It is the (terrifying) domestic life he sings about. These are beautiful poems, great passion, vision. Above all, humanity.”—Gerald Stern

“Berg’s is a unique, powerful voice in American poetry. Eloquent and zany, his poems deal with the most raw and emotionally rending themes, while maintaining a startling forthrightness of vision.”—C.K. Williams

“In reading Berg you will be reading the master of the prose poem.”—Jorie Graham

STEPHEN BERG is the founder of The American Poetry Review, which he has edited for more than thirty years, and the author of important collections of poetry and translations, including Halo, Rimbaud: Versions and Inventions, and The Elegy on Hats, published by Sheep Meadow.
