Item description for Late (American Poets Continuum) by Cecilia Woloch, Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Charles Dickens, Andrew Metrick, Elizabeth Blackburn, Glenn Barr & Kevin Nowlan...
Late is driven by the alternating energies of prose poems and free verse. Woloch understands a person's true -relationships with family, friends, and lovers arrive late-if at all. The exquisite pathos in these poems disclose Woloch's abiding empathy for family, children, ex-lovers, and strangers.
Born in Pittsburgh in 1956, Cecilia Woloch grew up in Pittsburgh and in Kentucky. She earned degrees in English and Theatre Arts from Transylvania University. Woloch has been active as a poet in the schools and teacher of creative writing workshops. She has received poetry prizes from The Wildwood Journal, Literal Latte, and the Kentucky Arts Council.

Reviews - What do customers think about Late (American Poets Continuum)?
maybe "never" would have been better than "late" Feb 7, 2006
why would a writer think their own personal drama's are "poetic"? this book was one personal trauma after another and was not worth reading. i can't believe that other reviewers found it to be good, obviously, they must all know each other and sleep with each other. why else would they write that something is good when in fact it put me to sleep. i hated this book.
Brava to the poet and her passionate suitcase! Nov 29, 2005
Cecilia Woloch's latest poetry collection is a deep plunge into the rich dark parts of life and language--without ever losing joie de vivre. I recommend this book to anyone who is pining, frustrated, thrilled, exhausted or hungry. Forceful and delicate at the same time. Brava to the poet and her passionate suitcase!
Embarassing Jun 25, 2005
More embarassiing trivia from this overated poet. Certainly not even worth picking up.
Late May 29, 2005
Deeply felt and finely crafted: these descriptions come to mind when we read the poetry of Cecilia Woloch. The poems are moving and intense. I strongly recommend this work, and her earlier books as well. One of our outstanding younger poets! -Kathleen Spivack-
Behind the Curtains Nov 11, 2003
This book, Woloch's third, is full of tenderness, spirit, and sensuality. For all the deep losses, humiliations, and conflicted desires and impulses, it is a book of mature modern-day love poems, love of family and place, friends and lovers, with a knowing eye on the price of such loving, paying the price, and moving on, loving again. These are poems about living bravely, resisting bitterness, accepting that happiness is forever endangered, an understanding reinforced through reoccurring images of the ephemeral, birds and ashes. Woloch's lyrical, emotive voice resonates naturally through a range of poetic forms and is above all generously humane.
