Like Dickinson’s letter to the world, Julie Waugh has dedicated herself to the poet’s 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.
