09 Alice Fulton, English

Felt (W.W. Norton, 2001). Fulton won the 2002 Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize for Poetry, sponsored by the Library of Congress, for this collection of poetry. Hailed as a book "blessed with great velocity, great staying-power," Felt was also selected by the Los Angeles Times as one of the best books of 2001 and a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award for Poetry. Felt is described as having "direct wiring between sensation and language, feeling and form," with physical, intellectual, and emotional force. The play on the word, felt, as tangled fibers and as the past tense of the word, feel, provides interesting contexts for the poetry.
