Item description for Scattered Chapters: New & Selected Poems by Baron Wormser...
"[Baron] Wormser is a beautiful writer of the meditative-narrative poem in the compassionate and lucid style of Frost, Hayden Carruth, and Donald Hall. Like those writers, his poems dignify rural lives, but also explore the national soul with particularly American integrity and frankness. Conversational, civilizing, thoughtful, and often funny, too, there are many extraordinary poems in these Scattered Chapters."-Tony Hoagland
Baron Wormser is the author of seven books of poetry, a collection of short stories, and a memoir. He directs the Frost Place Conference and teaches in the Stonecoast MFA Program. He served as Poet Laureate of Maine and now lives in Vermont.

A few words on Scattered Chapters by Baron Wormser Jul 7, 2008
Elegant and wonderful in its simplicity. Looking forward to sitting down and beginning to read it one more time. This collection of poems is what poetry means to me. Nothing fancy, no big words to impress his readers that he has an MFA or some such degree...just straight-forward poems, many of which have that all important "wow" at their climax.
