Reviews - What do customers think about Causeway (New Issues Poetry and Prose)?
Thoughtfully beautiful May 5, 2008
Poetry workshop instructor (Writing Institute of Sarah Lawrence College) Elaine Sexton presents Causeway, a collection of free-verse poetry that blends autobiographic elements with ongoing metaphors of landscape and waterscape. At times thoughtfully beautiful, at times set forth with blunt inner honesty, Causeway flows and cascades in rippling currents. "Taken": This is the boat that took me / out of my marriage, / the painter said, then clicked // to the next slide. Here is the chair, / the spare table I pulled my grief / up to. Here is where the gash // of oil paint put me: behind / a door closed, thick green / strokes refusing to leave.
