Review Text

  • By Vincent Hoenigman on March 4, 2015

    If you don’t know Fulton, Barely Composed is an excellent entry into a new world — by turns hilarious, breathtaking, heartbreaking, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful. A review snippet on Palladium accurately says Fulton’s language “in transforming itself, transforms the world.” This new volume has her signature serious wit and exquisite line, her sensual and compassionate heart, her “make it new” attitude toward the everyday. This is an ethical poetry of “inconvenient knowledge” in which Fulton protests injustice, defends truth-tellers and whistleblowers, gives voice to the voiceless, challenges hierarchy, weeps for the environment, and — importantly — accepts moral responsibility. Fulton continues to write with “unending honesty.”On the surface this new book offers startling, “hushdriven” pleasures; “good-strange,” imaginative images; surprising syntax and metaphor. But reading Fulton quickly is like watching a DVD on fast-forward — scenes register but meaning is lost. If you slow down — as great poetry demands — and open to the luxury of immersion, Fulton will unfold, expand, deepen into a “treasure revealer” of sublime complexity. It’s nothing new to say her books comprise way more than is immediately apparent, but Barely Composed — “iridescent with suspense” — ups the ante. There is comforting generosity behind these poems as well as anger over injustice, rage over cruelty and torture, wonder in love “so rich with rush,” and worship of all that is. Every line is interwoven with Fulton’s inimitably gorgeous “fingerprint distinct” voice: “Writing is the fire / that burns fire.”I bought 5 copies to give to fellow Fulton aficionados. it was so popular I am back on Amazon right now buying 5 more!

    “If ink could melt the page,” you already know the brilliance of Alice Fulton's writing. I have been reading her work since 1985 and recently reread everything she has written—poetry, fiction, essays—in anticipation of her new collection. Barely Composed is, without doubt, her best. The “sparkscript,” and “overness” in the poems is oracular, often humorous, always compassionate, and abundantly intelligent. The pleasures are many. Fulton is truly Emily D's impossible daughter. In this sumptuous collection she gives us new ways to feel. Her meditations on death, anguish, grief, the deeply ethnographic reciprocities of gift giving, love, and our inhumanity of many varieties—especially as torturers of humans and animals—are intensely moving. This is a world class poet who has not been given the full attention she so richly deserves.

    This collection is deeply moving, and often, I was caught off guard by the honesty about and expression of—in Fulton's inimitable, profoundly witty and brilliant style—grief. Often, I teared up reading it. And often I marveled at the sheer range of the poetry. This poetry soars, so inventive, and then the tactile and thought-full words where there’s the hush of discovery.

    Peroral and After the Angelectomy and Wow Moment and wow! Barely Composed is music to my mouth. It's a great collection by one of my favorite poets, ever since she read a poem to me for my birthday at The Hammer a couple years ago!

    These are some stunning poems, and I mean that in several very positive ways: they are sharp, gut-wrenching, and just plain visceral. Having just finished this, I'm certain that I will return to many of these poems several times. There are so many lines that hit me dead center with their emotion that I feel as if I've encountered a soul who has the ability to put into gorgeous words what I cannot express myself.I have to say that I am very grateful for poets such as Alice, and thank her for sharing these with all of us.
