  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 90, 2013
“American Odes,” features odes by Michael McFee, Lucinda Roy, Charles Harper Webb, Jim Daniels, Amanda Wynn, Joseph Miller, Pamela Painter, William Trowbridge, and more, that “savor the way we speak, our accents, our dialects, and our distinctly American language.” “Most of these odes are informal, American-casual. Four are formally composed. The poems range from ten lines to 118. But one trait that helps them feel American is their ambivalence and distinctive lyric crisis: besides praising the unlikely, many turn on the present in comparison to a remembered American past, often flavored with nostalgia.”
