Wakefield. 1998. Asphodel Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 158 pages. paperback. Jeffery Renard Allen (born 1962 Chicago) is an American poet, essayist, short story writer, and novelist. He is the author of two collections of poetry, Harbors and Spirits (Moyer Bell 1999) and Stellar Places (Moyer Bell 2007), and three works of fiction, the novel Rails Under My Back (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux 2000), a story collection Holding Pattern (Graywolf Press, 2008) and a second novel, Song of the Shank (Graywolf Press, 2014). In writing about his fiction, reviewers often note his lyrical use of language and his playful use of form to write about African American life. His poems tend to focus on music, mythology, history, film, and other sources, rather than narrative or autobiographical experiences. 155921208x. keywords: 42078. inventory # 27668. FROM THE PUBLISHER-Poet, novelist and critics, Jeffery Renard Allen brings a number of characteristics to his first collection of poems. He adapts jazz and blues forms to lyric poetry and uses a variety of cultural sources to draw together materials that exist in a shared mythology. The result has the directness and clarity of an African-American Homeric hymn. Rich in musicality, Allen's work offers an extra ordinary breadth of reference and discovery.
