This little book shines!
Baron Wormser wrote ten stories about ordinary people who each have a favorite poet and how the poetry affects their lives.
There's a waitress who finds validation in Sylvia Plath.
A grown orphan who lives each day with the joy of William Blake.
A high school junior who connects with Elinor Wylie.
A retired pharmacist who finds poetry in the simple things because of William Carlos Williams.
Wormser's prose is as poetic as the poems. This is a book I'll return to again and again.
