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



“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
