MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for "Ode to the Cold War: Poems New and Selected "This wide-ranging collection from a 30-year career shows Allen's poetry developing from a free-wheeling free verse to the employment of formal structure. Allen's work ranges with ease from astronomy to politics to domestic situations; his poetry captures great swatches of real and imagined experience in nimble style." --"Publishers Weekly "No matter how tactile and specific he is, Allen always retains a sense of the greater world. He writes about nature as an unceasingly active force, and he tracks the ripple effects of defining historical events from wars to the invention of the airplane, as though they were weather systems....[H]is pristine poems flow like timelines, drawing unexpected connections between happenings both major and minor, and observations both subtle and life changing." --"Booklist "Allen parlays memory, perception, and linguistic dexterity into a definitive style evolved over nearly thirty years of arduous making. By turns ironic and acerbic, elliptical and intricately structured, his poems deftly exploit the notion of a retrievable past bodied forth in vivid, memorable language." --Floyd Collins, "West Branch
"No matter how tactile and specific he is, Allen always retains a sense of the greater world....[H]is pristine poems flow like timelines, drawing unexpected connections between happenings both major and minor, and observations both subtle and life changing."
