Book Description

1 Feb 2003 Salt Modern Poets
The Sense Record breaks every rule. Rather than being spare and fragmentary, Moxley’s work is lush with modifiers, full sentences, and subordinate clauses. Rather than shun the first person singular as an unstable construct, she features it in almost every poem. And rather than problematize meaning, Moxley has things to say and actually says them.

Review

The Sense Record breaks every contemporary experimentalist rule. Rather than spare and fragmentary, Moxley’s work is lush with modifiers, full sentences, and subordinate clauses. Rather than shun the first person singular as an unstable linguistic construct, she features it in almost every poem, both as herself and as a relative position open to everyone. And rather than problematize meaning, Moxley has things to say and actually says them. (Cole Swensen)

She recharges old forms by dismantling the archaisms and replacing them with her own uses of language. It’s lyric synthesis through a kind of dream narrative, only that dream world brings with it real questions of how to live here and now. (Dale Smith)

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, beautiful, difficult, and wonderful----talent gal 14 Oct 2004
By Gary K. Tollison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Sense Record is a record of sense and sensiblity. Moxely uses the currents of poetry, both past and present, to confront and acknoledge difficult condrums involved in practicing poetry today. Her verse is often formal, but always inverted formal--or at least inverting the expctations of the formal: For example, "Against Aubade", which takes the form of an English sonnet, and the sound "Against Obeyed", lends gravity and further meaning to the brilliant sonnet she devises.

The sense record is not only about the sensual, (physical sense) but sensation and "making sense". Making sense of why we read and write poetry anymore, looking toward the undeniable reasons for it.
