3 Poems By Gerald Stern

3 poems logoTomorrow, Thursday June 10th, is the next meeting of the wildly popular, always invigorating 3 Poems By . . . Discussion! This month, we’re discussing poems by native Pittsburgh poet Gerald Stern.

Our selections are:

  • Behaving Like a Jew (Poem is within the article.)
  • Lucky Life
  • Kissing Stieglitz Goodbye
  • bonus poem: The Dancing
  • Listen to Stern give a deeply moving reading of “The Dancing” here. You can find out more about Stern and read examples of his poetry at the Poetry Foundation and Poets.org. You can also revisit Don’s extensive Stern post right here on Eleventh Stack.

    This is our last meeting of 3 Poems By . . . before our summer break, but we’ll see you again in September to discuss Nikki Giovanni. You can view the list of poets we’ve read in the past and will read in the future at the 3 Poems By . . . page on CLP’s website.
