Praise

Praise for Plenty
 
Plenty arises with litany and ire to meet the degradation of the Anthropocene, toxic hand of man everywhere complicit in planetary woes.  Lee’s epic magnanimously explores the frightening heights and unfathomable depths of crisis through a vibrant, cosmic naming and calling out. This is a compelling, bold, and studious documentary poetics.”
–Anne Waldman
 
“Stylistically radiant and diverse, Plenty is an epic for our time: shattered with horrors and difficult truths, blazing with warnings and, perhaps even redemptively, with the assertion of the capacities of poetry to enlighten and sing.”
–Dean Young
 
“Our bizarre historical moment sprawls here into a Roundup Ready, gun-toting, womb envying, American insistence on song. A wild and fevered epic devoted to saving the plenty of the lyric voice from annihilation.”
–Alison Hawthorne Deming
 
“Here we have (as Whitman did) Emerson’s idea of entranced waiting (solitary, grand, secular) but from a place/time/mind so full, so high in flames it seems miraculous that anyone could be so relentlessly awake and singing there (here). . .the volume is high, the tone necessarily and at once keening, meditative, accusing, aroused.”
 –Kathleen Peirce
