"Open Late: New & Collected Poems (1979-2018)
- Rex Wilder’s passion for rhyme and rhymes of passion set him apart as a unique presence in contemporary American poetry. In addition to collecting Wilder's published poetry, ""Open Late"" includes some 100 previously unpublished works. The two-term U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins said this of Wilder's first book, ""Waking Bodies"", which is included in this volume: “In Rex Wilder's poetry, the tired English of everyday use comes back to us refreshed and full of its original surprise. In a world glutted with poetry, that Wilder has found a new way to say the old things is a notable achievement.”"
