"In Unattached Male Anne Harding Woodworth 'plays her poetry as a virtuoso musician plays an instrument: with a crisp, authoritative, confident touch that never leaves the reader in doubt." Norman R. Shapiro
"What is at work here is compassion that states down the spectacle of pity, that moves through much quiet and unquiet suffering that affects the lives of men -- and women -- each day." Baron Wormser
The Artemis Sonnets, Etc.
"Here the ground is dappled and rich with mystery and meaning, intelligence and implication. At her best, alongside her keen ear and obvious talent, Harding Woodworth knows well how to make a poem sing and continue singing though the multiple levels of whatever refrain she traverses." René Ashley
Woven into this stunning book of poems is the quiet telling of a modern marriage which splits in tow while its teller, who is American becomes firmly wedded forever to its locale, which is Greece." Rod Jellema
Spare Parts: A Novella in Verse
"You will fall madly in love with Anne Harding Woodworth's Spare Parts: A Novella in Verse. The characterizations are vibrant and complex, as are the many story lines that braid, inextricably, throughout its pages. What a joy this book is!" Renée Ashley
"There can't be many works of literature that bring together St. Francis and Dale Earnhardt but in this verse novella Anne Harding Woodworth has created an emotional and physical landscape capacious enough for both eminences. A tale of friendship over decades and of mountains ranging from Greece to Tennessee her poem is, at once, thoroughly composed yet truly idiosyncratic, droll yet moving." Baron Wormser
