Late in a Slow Time

'Late' in Carole Glasser Langille's new book comes to mean not 'too late' but 'recently achieved, after long experience.' Her poetry takes the always provisional knowledge derived from living and thinking, and produces the delight of fine and fresh perception - a delight constantly enacted in memorable language, sparkling and original yet direct and simple. Wise and funny, private and public, various in their tones and subjects, Langille's poems never lose their thread, they project "To eat life's brevity/the way the North wind eats winter/and grows strong."

        —A.F. Moritz
