    Dan Gerber’s mastery of layered imagery and crystalline vision marry European Romanticism with American Zen.  These meditative poems engage the natural landscape of California’s oak savannas and memories of childhood, while calling upon an array of literary progenitors – from Robinson Jeffers and Rainer Maria Rilke to the classics of the Chinese canon – exploring what it means to be linguistically alive in an animal world.  As ForeWord magazine wrote, “Dan Gerber’s poems are quick, graceful, alert to their surroundings, and rarely wasting a motion.” (from nicholasbooks.com)
