The Poetics of American Song Lyrics

Beth Ann Fennelly

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter looks at folk-alt/country singer Caroline Herring’s album Golden Apples and one of its songs, “The Dozens.” It argues that “The Dozens,” dedicated to author and political activist Larry Levine, is a fight song as well as a song about youth Herring could not have written when she was young. The chapter weaves the personal with the analytical as the author reflects on her own life and poetry in regards to those selves who we once were.

Keywords:   songs, Caroline Herring, album, Golden Apples, The Dozens, Larry Levine, youth, poetry, fight song
