Some brief overview of this book
Fulton is exactly the kind of poet Shelley had in mind when he said Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world. Verse In this eagerly awaited collection of new poemsher first in over a decadeAlice Fulton reimagines the great lyric subjectstime, death, loveand imbues them with fresh urgency and depth. Barely Composed unveils the emotional devastations that follow trauma or griefextreme states that threaten psyche and language with disintegration.
With rare originality, the poems illuminate the deepest suffering and its aftermath of hypervigilance and numbness, the formal feeling described by Emily Dickinson. Elegies contemplate temporal mysteriesthe brief span of humananimal life, the nearly eternal existence of stars and nuclear fuel, the enduring presence of the artsand offer unsparing glimpses of personal loss and cultural suppressions of truth. Under the duress of silencing, whether chosen or imposed, language warps into something uncanny, rich, and profoundly moving.
Various forms of inscriptioncoloring book to redacted documentenact the combustible power of the unsaid. Though anguish is the universal language, there also is joy in the reciprocity of gifts and creativity, intellect and intimacy. Gorgeous vintage rhetorics merge with incandescent contemporary registers, and this recombinant linguistic mix gives rise to poems of disarming power.
Visionariestruth tellers, revelators, beholdersoffer testimony as beautiful as it is unsettling. Shimmering with the good strangeness of poetry, Barely Composed bears witness to loves complexities and the fragility of existence. In the midst of cruelty, a world in which "the pound is by the petting zoo," Fultons poems embrace the inextinguishable search for goodness, compassion, and the principles of tranquility.
