  • 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.”

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 30 Number 1, Fall 2013
Ending the Fall season with a read to remember is Vol. XXX, No.1 of The MacGuffin. Filled with imagery of nostalgia and despair—such as Alexis Rhone Fancher’s “Mahogany Funeral Urn” and Randy K.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 19 Number 4, Winter 2013
Rattle #42 is another entirely open free-for-all, and we’ve stuffed it to the whim: from personal ads to angels, from plum blossoms to catfish tits (you read that right). Tim Laffey longs for Pindar’s couch, Taylor Mali misreads a magnifying glass, and Patricia Smith has a binder for Mitt. These poems are heavy and light, eye-opening and jaw-dropping, including powerful work by teenager Grace L. Park, seven-year-old Ghanaian Kofi Edufo, and Roberto Acalon’s Rattle Poetry Prize-winner, “The Fire This Time.” In the conversations section, Timothy Green discusses poetry and life with the irreverently funny Ron Koertge.

  • Volume/Number/Issue/Date Volume 121 Number 4, Fall 2013
Our essay-issue features travel in the literal and metaphorical senses. The road trip, that distinctly American form of pilgrimage, is the central event in Robert Lacy’s poignant essay about traveling with his mother, and—despite his not having a car—the chosen mode of travel for Warner Berthoff, who recounts hitchhiking around the South. Catharine Savage Brosman tests John Donne’s famous dictum, “Every man is an island,” in her essay on life, travel, and a sense of self. Voyeurism, stormy seas, and danger unite in Richard O’Mara’s recounting, while Robert Ashcom remembers a different kind of oceanic peril, writing about his adventures at sea as a young man in the fifties.
