Contemporary Poetry and Poetics

Review of Rita Dove's Eighth Book of Poetry
Rita Dove appears to have blended the lyricism
which derives from her musical background
with a fresh sense of movement and rhythm
within the poems that owes something to her developed
interest and participation in dancing. The flow
of the lines in her poetry seems even more subtle, more natural, and more free than in past collections. As the definition for the book's title suggests, there is a greater attention to imitating motion that mirrors improvisation and allows individual expression. The eloquent language is accompanied by elegant pacing across the page. P ast commentary on Rita Dove's poetry has frequently, and correctly, focused upon its graceful phrasing of language. As is often the case for others among our best poets, reviewers have pointed out the lyricism and musicality evident in her carefully crafted lines, even in her more narrative poems. Indeed, given Dove's history as a trained musician and singer, not to mention the associations conveniently suggested by her last name, such comparisons between verse and song, the metrical and the musical, in her works have seemed even more natural parallels for critics to track and spotlight. In "The Black Dove," a chapter from

    Rita Dove - 1952 Akron By Mary Cameron Kitchin
    Sycamore High School, Cincinnati, Ohio I. Personal and Professional Biography "With the consistently accomplished work of … Rita Dove, there is at least one clear sign if not of a coming renaissance of poetry, then at least of the emergence of an unusually strong new figure who might provide leadership by brilliant example" (Arnold Rampersad qtd. in Bloom 63). Born in Akron, Ohio, in 1952 ("Rita Dove" par. 1), Rita Frances Dove was the second child born to Ray A. Dove and Elvira Elizabeth Hord (Bloom 59). Elvira was a housekeeper, and Ray was the first black chemist at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Akron (Gates 481). Dove's childhood proved to be relatively stable; her family was "…a first-generation middle-class family" (Dove qtd. in Gates 481). Rita Dove was an ambitious child and a very good student; she was ranked among the top one hundred high school seniors in the nation and was therefore invited to the White House as a "Presidential Scholar." Dove then went on to attend Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She graduated summa cum laude in 1973 and entered Tubingen University in West Germany on a Fulbright scholarship (Bloom 59).

    Rita Dove's Rage Against Complacency
    Context is indispensable in literary interpretation, but not every poem written requires the digging in order to grasp the larger things a poet is getting at. Rita Dove's poem "Blues in Half Tones, 3/4 Time" is a good example of this. The context is from the black experience, but she doesn't depend on every reader's knowledge of black history and it's struggle for civil rights in order for them to comprehend and respond to her more generalized theme: nay-saying and apathy are killers of the soul and ambition. Her particulars happen to be black, elements with which she creates art, but the poem is written skillfully enough for readers of different cultural origins to relate to her themes and understated assertions. Meaning, as such , is not locked up in an identity-specific criteria.
    Dove sounds like she's talking about equivocation here, in the voice of someone responding to another's remarks or complaints about the wrongs that exist in life, both on the personal and global levels. The responding voice admits the unfairness of the wrongs that have been done, but offers a solution that equals the that one may as well make the best with the imperfect situation they're in.

    Rita Dove *Rita Dove was born on this date in 1952. She is an African-American writer and poet.
    From Akron, Ohio, Rita Frances Dove is the daughter of Ray and Elvira Dove. A National Merit Scholar, she graduated from Miami University in Ohio summa cum laude in 1973. She then attended the Universitaet Tuebingen in West Germany on a Fulbright Scholarship from 1974-1975. In 1977 she graduated from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop with an MFA.
    It was in Iowa that Dove met her husband, German novelist Fred Viebahn; they married in 1979 and have one daughter, Aviva Chantal Tamu Dove-Viebahn.
    After publishing Ten Poems, in 1977, Dove was awarded grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Ohio Arts Council. Four years later she accepted a position as Assistant Professor in the English Department at Arizona State University (ASU). She left ASU in 1989 as Professor of English for a similar position at the University of Virginia. In 1993 she was named Commonwealth Professor of English, a position she continues to hold. That same year the Library of Congress named Dove Poet Laureate of the United States. Here, Dove became the youngest person and only African American to be named to that post, an appointment she held for two years.
    During her tenure she brought Crow Indian schoolchildren from Montana to read their poems at the Library of Congress, helped launch a series of public-service ads about poetry in conjunction with the Lifetime cable network, and organized other programs in an attempt to make poetry more "user-friendly." Included among her numerous awards is a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1987 for Thomas and Beulah; a National Book Award; a Guggenheim Fellowship; a Rockefeller Foundation Residency; a Mellon Fellowship; a Heniz Award in Arts and Humanities; an Amy Lowell Fellowship; and a Shelley Memorial Award.

    Understanding Rita Dove serves as a critical introduction to the poetry of the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer who was also the first African American poet laureate of the United States. Through close readings of seven poetry collections, Pat Righelato offers detailed analyses of Rita Dove's thematic concerns and artistic development while bringing to light the musical sense of form and expression of history that permeates Dove's work. While underscoring each collection's distinctive identity, Righelato explores the continuities that link volume to volume, from the earliest chapbooks to Dove's most recent collection, American Smooth Charting Dove's evolution as a poet, Righelato begins with The Yellow House on the Corner to identify motifs of the mythical, historical, familial, and autobiographical that have become the writer's artistic capital. Dove brings African American experience to the mainstream of American poetry in Thomas and Beulah and On the Bus with Rosa Parks.

    Tribute to Gwendolyn Brooks by Rita Dove
    A Tribute By: Rita Dove Poet Laureate of the United States How does one begin to convey the influence Gwendolyn Brooks has had on generations-not only writers, but people from all walks of life? How can one describe the fiercely personal connection her poems make, how chronicle her enormous impact on recent literary, social, and political history? There is a tradition in the black church: we call it Testifying. It is the brave and humbling act of standing up among one's family, friends, and neighbors to bare one's soul, and to bear witness by acknowledging those who have sustained and nurtured the testifier along the way. Here, then, is my testimonial honoring Gwendolyn Brooks: Standing in front of this literary congregation as a grown woman, a woman who has entered her 40s, I feel very strange thinking that when Gwendolyn Brooks was awarded the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for "Annie Allen," her second collection of poems, I was not even, as people used to say then, "a twinkle in my daddy's eye."

    76. Ohio Reading Road Trip | Rita Dove Biography
    By 1980, rita dove (now married to Fred Viebahn) was already garnering national press through her work in magazines and anthologies.
    Rita Dove
    Born: August 28, 1952 When she was eleven years old, Rita Dove came home from the library crying. When her mother asked her what was wrong, she told her that the librarians wouldn't let her read a book she wanted to read. Her mother sent her back with a note: "Let her check out any book she wants." It was this trust and encouragement that enabled Dove to become the youngest writer and first African American to be named Poet Laureate of the United States thirty years later. Even today, she names her parents as her biggest influences: "The one thing that was important was the fact that you never said, 'I don't get it, I'm going to give up.' You start small and you work at it a little bit at a time." Growing up in Akron , Ohio with three siblings (now all chemists and mathematicians), Dove spent her time reading everything on her parents' bookshelves and then going to the library for more. Although she had several inspiring teachers, she remembers relishing the fact that, in the library, she chose the books to read they weren't assigned. "I loved to write when I was a child," she says. "I wrote, but I always thought it was something you did as a child, then you put away childish things…. I didn't know writers could be real live people, because I never knew any writers." She saw "her first live author" at a book signing on a high school field trip. That experience hinted at something for Dove: that if this seemingly normal man could be a writer, maybe she could too.

Add to RSS Critics such as Helen Vendler and Arnold Rampersad have praised Dove's austere poetic aesthetic, noting her economy of language, attention to nuance, wide range of allusion, original and surprising images, and virtuosity. Her themes include adolescence and maturation, the underside of history, slavery, family love, identity, the language of music, and power relations inflected by race and gender. Ekaterini Georgoudaki has characterized Dove's work as "crossing boundaries" of race, gender, class, culture, and time because Dove has insistently written from a wide variety of subject positions: male, female, white American, Chinese, African American, German, the historically famous, and the unknown commoner, and in the distant past as well as the immediate present. Dove was born in 1952 and raised in Akron, Ohio. Her mother was a homemaker and her father was a chemist for Goodyear who had worked as a janitor there until upper-level jobs opened to blacks in the rubber industry. She speaks of her childhood experiences as typically middle class. She studied cello extensively (and now also plays the viola da gamba), was exposed to literature and reading in a home filled with books, and became fluent in German. An excellent student, Dove was a 1970 Presidential Scholar (one of the top one hundred U.S. high school students), went on to study English at Miami University in Ohio, and was a Fulbright scholar at the Universitat Tubingen in Germany. She attended the University of Iowa's Writers Workshop and received an M.F.A. in 1977. There she also met her husband, the German novelist Fred Viebahn. They have a daughter, Aviva, and live in Charlottesville, Virginia, where Dove is Commonwealth Professor of English at the University of Virginia.
