Library Journal - Library Journal
Early on, the poem ``Tide of Voices'' suggests a direction for this collection: ``the walls/ between the cells of memory dissolve, blur/ into a single stream of voices and faces.'' Yet the voices and faces found in these poems do not blur; each is exact and memorable, haunting as the ``ghosts/who linger, needy even in death.'' Hull knows her craft: she has a good ear and creates wonderful worlds both of her own and of the go-go girl, the all-night waitress, and the others who inhabit these pages. She writes with great care, dignity, and humanity; her characters have tremendous depth, and layer by layer they are revealed in these strong lyrical narratives. So, too, is the poet. This volume won the 1986 Juniper Prize: it was a good choice, and would be for any contemporary poetry collection. Louis McKee, English Dept., Father Judge H.S., Philadelphia
