Informing the Past: Allison Joseph’s Confessions of a Barefaced Woman?

Allison Joseph’s, Confessions of Barefaced Woman was reviewed by Robert Sheldon from MockingHeart Review.

Allison Joseph?s new collection Confessions of a Barefaced Woman is a forthright and unabashed examination of the speaker?s personal lives. From past girlhood to her present as an assured and confident woman, this narrator troubles the idea that self-reflection should?or even can?be nostalgic. Impulses here layer upon one another, with later poems informing ones earlier in the collection just as our futures often inform our pasts; a highly aware melding of form and content.
