The History Hotel by Baron Wormser
CavanKerry Press, March 2023
In The History Hotel, his eleventh poetry collection, Baron Wormser offers the range of subjects and imaginative approaches his readers have come to expect—from the life of a candle to the life of a Jewish Résistance fighter, from elegy to monologue, from a Godard film to the National Football League. The historical circumstances that touch, anneal, shatter, and buttress a life are paramount. The reality of consequences remains the ongoing, ineluctable drama. We all live in the ‘History Hotel’ where love and betrayal, hope and despair go hand in hand. Showing those entangled hands is the work of these poems.
