Reviews about History in Bones (Wick Chapbook Series 2) (4):
Chuynopana
Juliana has a gripping, still voice that grabs you from the first line of poetry that you read. Her astute observations about difficult subjects are both poignant and humorous. I predict great success for her work in the future.
Ballazan
Just a quick note to say that Juliana is a fine young poet -- I've read most of her poetry, and met her once and liked her; she's one of these young writers who is going to continue to produce good work for decades and it will be interesting to see where she goes with her work down the road.

Juliana Gray Vice, History in Bones (Kent State University Press, 2001)

It is usually the case that long poems do little in a chapbook other than take up space. With Juliana Gray Vice's History in Bones, however, the long poem therein ("Bird, Smoke, Crystal, Bone") is in fact the centerpiece of the whole book, its strongest single work.

"The necromancer's future is found in death,

the numerologist's in holy math,

the tasseomancer's in a teacup's sodden leaves.

And mine? Tonight, already morning's cusp

and the new year's darkling dawn, the best

and last I have is stichomancy, the search

for fateful meaning in random pages of books.

The future's a glossary of Latin roots."

("Bird, Smoke, Crystal, Bone")

The passage serves as an excellent synecdoche for the book as a whole, marking both the strengths (Vice's sense of natural rhythm, the deadpan delivery of her best lines, a keen sense of irony) and weaknesses (a touch of overwriting here and there, instead of understating, to get the rhythm, e.g. "darkling dawn" or "fateful meaning," giving us things we can find ourselves). The strengths do outweigh the weaknesses, and History in Bones is a worthwhile collection for reader perusal. It may be a bit hard to track down these days, but it's worth it. ***

This is a cool collection. JGV has a clear, lyrical style packed with enough eyeball kicks to please a casual poetry reader, but there's also more than enough sophistication here to satisfy the most persnickety academic. Recommended.
