Late Empire, David Wojahn's most wide-ranging collection of poetry, affirms his status as one of the most compelling and original voices of his generation.

Centered around tow masterful elegies for the writers parents, the poems also treat an array of subjects familiar to us from news events but rarely examined by contemporary poetry.
