Towards a Grammar of Being

Front Cover
Interactive Publications, 2009 - Australian poetry - 63 pages
In the tradition of Dickinsons letter to the world, Julie Waugh has dedicated herself to the poets scrupulous custom of reflection and self-examination. The result is this poetic self-portrait. What towards a grammar of being delivers, in its high intelligence and tender sensuality, and in its inventive stream-of-verse episodes, is, quite simply, psychology, or what we used to call intuition. This is poetry for poetry lovers who remember when poetry had something to tell us about ourselves and about living the good life, and when reading poetry meant enjoying a poetic experience. -- Gregory Vincent St. Thomasino, editor, E-ratio
