Though Hulls poems are narrative in structure, their language is precise and intensely lyrical. The craftsmanship of the poems does not suggest, however, that the writer is content with a mere linguistic tour de force.

These are poems that both strive to let their speaker come to terms with her own past and give memorable speech to the many characters who people the books pages. Though Hull includes poems of family and personal history in this collection, she is also significantly concerned with the voices of characters who are often imperfectly treated in contemporary poetry--the wronged social outcasts and eccentrics whose testimony Hull conveys with honesty and sympathy. The spirit of Ghost Money is not of longing or introspection, but of forgiveness.

The epigraph from Chekhov that opens the volume is perhaps the best indicator of Hulls sensibility: All things are forgiven. . . . it would be strange not to forgive.
