Chicago Review;Autumn2010/Winter2011, Vol. 55 Issue 3/4, p74
This essay presents the language writing and lyric subjectivity of post-Language writer Juliana Spahr. It mentions that Spahr revitalizes the ancient ability of lyrics to affirm communal values as she stages her resistance to destructive global politics. The author observes that the lyric aspects of the poem of Spahr might be in tension with the poem's political commitments.
