Poetry. William Fuller's HALLUCINATION negotiates between worlds of the living and the dead, shifting mercurially from verse to prose and from parody to parable. Along the way, Fuller draws our attention to the ineffable qualities of experience, proposing that "Matter is a fog one looks through toward pale headlights..." Through these glancing observations and surreal memoranda, the mysteries appear more vivid, our follies more desperate and absurd.
William Fuller grew up in Barrington, Illinois, and received his PhD from the University of Virginia in 1983.
