Abstract:

In her new book, Alice Notley mixes short lyrics with long, expansive lines of poetry that often take the form of prose sentences, in an effort to change writing completely. The title piece, a folksong-like lament, makes a unified tale out of many stories of many people; the middle section, The Black Trailor, is a compilation of noir fictions and reflections; while the shorter poems of Hemostatic range from tough lyrics to sung dramas.
