MEDIA REVIEWS
" Wojahn impresses with his finely honed ability to interlayer the present day and its prosaic details with the shadowy horrors and honors of the past."
"--Booklist"
" Wojahn delights in generating poems from the flotsam and jetsam of contemporary culture. This new offering reaches beyond his earlier work and enters more harrowing arenas of experience, exploring the collective and individual human condition via a catalogue of miseries, mishaps and bottled-up memories. . . ."Late Empire" marks a significant maturation, and is one of the more ambitious recent collections."
