Rebecca Wolff (Author)


Winner of the 2003 Barnard Women Poets Prize, Figment has a vivacity and edge which gives it immediate presence" (Eavan Boland).

What is a poem?  Figment suggests myriad possible answers: a post-confession, a remnant lyric, an unerringly wistful invention. Rebecca Wolff makes use of every tool at her disposal to create charming, discomfiting poems, spiked with "shrewd summings-up" and "nervy, controlled lyric bursts"  (Maureen N. McLane, Chicago Tribune).
