About the book:

Powers of Congress exhibits, in dazzling language and complex rhetorical structures, a passionate curiosity about all aspects of modern American life. Sven Birkerts, in The Boston Review, called Fulton a "prodigiously gifted poet," and Powers of Congress more than meets that claim. Back by popular demand, this is a reprint of an important collection that continues to exert a wide influence upon contemporary poetics. It will surely intoxicate all those who love the erotic involvement of language with thought.

"She is an ambitious, powerful poet.... She is a thematic gambler of the best sort. Her poems are daring and broad."Eavan Boland, Partisan Review

"Powers of Congress is a rigorous, generous book, by one of the finest young poets in the country."David Baker, Poetry

"In Powers of Congress Alice Fulton shows she's learned a thing or two about levitation."David Barber, Hungry Mind Review
