The New Intimacy

Barbara Cully’s first book of poems winner of the 1996 National Poetry Series Open Competition is a lyrical rebuttal to the administered reality. The book’s strengths are the application of beautiful perceptual imagination, thoroughly modern language, its telescoping of history and the temporal, its political awareness, its acute descriptions of the erotic, and its confrontations with language itself.
