Poetry. In THE REPUBLIC OF LIES, Ochester utilizes a straightforward - and often humorous - tone to comment on American culture in the twenty-first century. Replete with references to pop culture and literary icons alike, Ochester's latest book is enjoyable all the way through. Poems from THE REPUBLIC OF LIES have appeared in numerous journals including AGNI, American Poetry Review, and Prairie Schooner. Ochester has published twelve books of poetry, is editor of the Pitt Poetry Series, and co-edits the magazine 5 AM. He has received fellowships from the NEA and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
