  • American Smooth: Poems (W. W. Norton & Company) – Hardcover (2004)
    by Rita Dove

    American Smooth: Poems

    Hardcover, W. W. Norton & Company
    2004
    English
    143 pages

    ISBN: 0393059871
    ISBN-13: 9780393059878

    This exciting new collection pays homage to America's kaleidoscopic cultural heritage: from the glorious shimmer of an operatic soprano to Bessie Smith's mournful wail; from paradise lost to angel-food cake; from hot-shots at the local shooting range to the Negro jazz band in the First World War, whose music conquered Europe before the Allied advance. Like the ball-room dancing couple of the title poem, smiling and making the difficult seem effortless, Rita Dove explores shifting surfaces between perception and imitation.
