“Ode to American English,” by Barbara Hamby

June 14, 2010

A poem that bolts up like a B-movie mummy, “Whoa I was toasted!”

I read “Ode to American English” out of The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature (8th ed.) edited by Michael Meyer. Or you can find it in Barbara Hamby’s  own book, Babel(U of Pittsburgh Press, 2004).

    She’s got it. Perfect timing for being reminded who we are as we’re soon out the door to where they speak English.
