When, Baron Wormser
"Whether the subject is Beethoven's maid hearing strange sounds [or] a deli waiter bemoaning his work ..., the action in each poem is unique in its specific details.... Graced with humor, lust, and bracing narrative momentum, Wormser's poetry presents a menagerie of wonderfully familiar strangers."--Publishers Weekly
Wormser is the author of seven books of poetry, a collection of short stories, and a memoir, among others. He directs the Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching and teaches in the Stonecoast MFA Program. The recipient of fellowships from the NEA and the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Wormser served as Poet Laureate of Maine from 2000 to 2005.
