Owner description: The angel that Thomas Wolfe described in his book "Look Homeward Angel" is located close to his memorial.
Reviewed 23 January 2013

This is the famous "look homeward angel" sculpture that inspired Thomas Wolfe. Although it was surprisingly small to me, it is a lovely sculpture that caused a great emotional response for me.

The eyes of the angle look steadfastly at the grave beneath her. It is beautiful.

It's nice to see a bit of literary history for free. Oakdale Cemetary is across the road from a school. So traffic can be a bit heavy.

There is a sign at the street but no sign at the angel. It does have a fence around it so that's a clue. You could miss it if you don't know what you are looking for.

A rewarding visit for the "Literary Tourist." Statue came from the Asheville monument business that belonged to Thomas Wolfe's father, but does not mark Thomas Wolfe's grave; he is buried in Asheville.
