    Very interesting use of archival research to generate some amazing poetic text. Some of the poems are stronger than others, but if you have ANY interest in the Salem Witch Trials and reimagining history for creative text, I would highly recommend this quick read. Alsopoetry about witches come on now:)

    Oh my goodness what a magical collection. Archival poetry collections have really started to take a place in my heart and I am truly loving it. Cooley does an amazing job at giving voices to the women and some men of the Salem Witch trials. I am truly obsessed with this collection.

    Collection of poems from the imagined perspective of the girls in the Salem Witch Trial. Love the way this poet revisits history with imaginative form and content. (Inspires me when writing about my Schwenks!)

    Cooley does a great job of approaching a historic moment: the Salem Witch Trials. These poems range. They shift modes. The book is dark and interesting.

The archival recuperation is embodied in the personified voices of Dorcas Good, Giles Corey, Sarah Carrier and others connected peripherally to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692; the mode is kitsch, pastiche, parodic atavism; the post-modernism entails a recursive "raising" of the present moment of writing, or i [...]

    Nicole Cooley, The Afflicted Girls (Louisiana State University, 2004)Nicole Cooley starts here from a popular point in American mythology, the Salem witch trials. When you're tackling something that's been done so many times, you have to take a different tack than others have. Cooley elects to spend much of the book telling the tales from the points of view of some of the more minor characters. Everyone's shown us the Salem witch trials from the points of view of the accusers, the Mathers, etc. [...]

    Writing a collection that revolves around one historical event is a bit tricky. In fact, I would say that it's impossible, but I have read a few books that actually accomplish this feat. I believe that Nicole Cooley's book, The Afflicted Girls, a collection about the Salem Witchcraft Trials is a mixed bag.Cooley mixes persona voices with personal narratives of her own research about the Salem Witchcraft Trials. For example, Tituba, the slave in one of the households, is given a voice in the poem [...]
