Citizen An American Lyric Review:
Citizen An America Lyric is quite unlike the traditional books you usually read. The book consists of seven chapters interspersed with images and artworks. The first chapter details microaggressions Rankine and her friends have experienced. The second chapter discusses the YouTube character Hennessy Youngman (created by Jayson Musson) and racial incidents in the life of Serena Williams.
The third chapter features more microaggressions and the nature of racist language. In the fourth chapter, Rankine writes of the transition of sighs into aches, the nature of language, memory, and watching tennis matches in silence. Chapter five is a complex poem on self-identity interspersed with more microaggressions.
The book is interspersed with images of various paintings, drawings, sculptures, and screen grabs. Just like the book’s different writing nature, the reception it received was quite different as well. For instance, it was more enthusiastic than critical, and almost every publication and reviewer praised Rankine’s unique approach towards poetry.
In 2010, Citizen An American Lyric was ranked among the greatest literary work by the Literary Hub contributors and holds a rating of 4.3 out of 5 on the Goodreads.
