Synopsis: Selected by Alice Fulton as the Winner of the 1996 Kathryn A. Morton Prize in Poetry.

Review: A steadfast characteristic of Baron Wormser's poetry is his absolute honesty. In When, winner of the 1996 Kathryn A. Morton Prize in Poetry, he puts aside any expectations of poetic prettiness to take a clear, linguistically fresh look at issues such as AIDS, Vietnam, the ethics of fast-food consumption, and the seduction of Vegas. One of the sharpest poems, "Farmers Go Crazy Slowly," subtly reveals the societal elements behind the insanity of trying to run a farm in this century. Wormser's love of the world is evident, despite the searing light that he shines upon it.

Book Description Sarabande Books, 1997. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The most salient feature of Baron Wormser s work is its empathy. As he says in Poems, Your soul s a canyon. And their souls too. Wormser conflates his soul with the reader s soul and thereby erodes conventional distinctions between us and them. But Wormser seems most likely to identify with us when we feel excluded, estranged, awkward, when we resist the homogenizing effects of modern life. His speakers and subjects range from a lowly ant to the residents of a terminal children s ward to a naively idealistic hippie confronting the guardian of a missile silo in the Midwest. The voices in these poems do not observe so much as sink down into the inexplicably unfair lottery of life, giving us perspective from both the blessed and luckless among us.
