New Review of Speech Acts in The Potomac

Laura McCullough’s acclaimed poetry collection, Speech Acts, gets high praise in the Spring 2011 issue of The Potomac: “McCullough’s poetry is vividly sensuous, and in the first of the three parts of this collection, which most directly reflects the book’s title, over and over McCullough ties words and speech to their physical actions and consequences, reminding us, keenly and lucidly, that poetry itself is at once an oral act and a written one — a “speech act,” indeed.”
