Ode to the Cold War: Poems New and Selected, Dick Allen
"Allen ponders time with amazement and humility,... he conjures the places that have shaped our era--Germany, Russia, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam--with mythic intent, but whether his focus is historical, scientific, or intimate, he is unfailingly empathetic."--Booklist
Author of six previous poetry collections, Dick Allen has received poetry writing fellowships from the NEA, the Ingram Merrill Foundation, as well as the Robert Frost Prize for Poetry and The Hart Crane Poetry Prize. He recently retired from his position as Charles A. Dana Endowed Chair Professor at the University of Bridgeport.
