Whether in prose or poetry, Barbara Hennings formal inventiveness has given her apparently autobiographical material a power never found in purely confessional writing. Her vision of an unreasonable world (our very own) is very intelligent, very intense, sometimes funny, always disturbing. (Harry Matthews)Barbara Hennings Detective sentences are fastened with empathy. Lived sorrow for our failures to connect and a tender knowledge of human potential is the larger sense these discrete and enignmatic sentences illuminate. Like the outline of a body, her phrases impart the residue, memorys investigative unveiling process, here in this house inside a house/ with a spider tatooed over your breastbone (Kimberling Lyons)Detective Sentences—Hennings surfaces are straight forward, yet her non-sequiturs and leaps are connected by an invisible web that links strands of ordinary, uncommon humanity to the absurd and the cosmic. (Brenda Coultas)
