Cecilia Woloch Featured in American Life in Poetry

Cecilia Woloch's poem "My Mother's Pillow," from her book Late, was recently selected as the weekly poem in American Life in Poetry, a "project for newspapers" run by 2004-2006 US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. "I don't often mention literary forms," Kooser writes in his brief introduction to Woloch's work, "but of this lovely poem... I want to suggest that the form, a villanelle, which uses a pattern of repetition, adds to the enchantment I feel in reading it. it has a kind of layering, like memory itself."
