Review by Laura Sloan Patterson in NCLR
“When She Was Bad is not, however, an in-your-face shock value collection. Instead, it contemplates a far more subtle and complex space: sexuality that is both brashly revealed and furtively hidden, sometimes at the same time.”
Review by David Nilsen in Fourth & Sycamore
“[Freeman] addresses these binary assumptive options in the title poem, in which she briefly deconstructs Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s ‘There was a little girl’ and exposes it as a distillation of the virgin/whore dichotomy. She finishes the poem with these simple words: ‘Her clear-eyed knowing: / trouble.’ If the little girl in the classic rhyme was merely ‘very, very good’ or ‘horrid,’ we would know what to do with her.”
