The poems in this new volume by the winner of the National Book Award span countries and centuries, reflecting on memory, aging, history, and mortality. "Hamlet Naked" traverses Manhattan in the 1960s from a Shakespeare play on 47th Street to the cellar of a Ukrainian restaurant in the East Village; "Thieves and Murderers" encompasses musings of the medieval French poet Fran#65533;ois Villon and Dwight Eisenhower; "Orson" recounts a meeting of the poet and Orson Welles, exiled in Paris. Gerald Stern recalls old cars he used to drive--"the 1950 Buick / with the small steering wheel / and the cigar lighter in the back seat"--as well as intimate portraits of his daily life "and the mussel-pooled and the heron-priested shore" of Florida. These are wistful, generous, lively love poems and elegies that capture the passage of time, the joys of a sensual life, and remembrances of the past.
