Poetry. "A strange intelligence guides the works in THE NEW MAKE BELIEVE toward insistent, yet nearly ineffable, redefinitions of commonplace words, as if everything were, in being named, strange. 'Accident,' 'law,' 'memorial,' 'wolf,' 'pants,' 'sex' and other such terms participate in intense proto-symbolic musicalities to reveal (or cover) what seem to be crucial yet cheerily personal insights into what it is to be alive as or in a person surrounded by a baffling world of dark beauty--and mysterious others. Denise Newman's work is here more haunting than ever, and as needful of contemplation"—Norman Fischer.
