Item description for This Sharpening by Ellen Dore Watson...

This Sharpening is Ellen Dore Watson's fourth collection of poetry. Watson navigates the fierce terrain of marriage, divorce, love, and longing. In these pages the pain of loss contrasts with the pleasures of motherhood when a long marriage ends. These poems map with unflinching attention the unraveling of a marriage and the persistence of longing, but also chronicle the quotidian joys of the mothering life and the scissor grip on reality it demands, the balance it can restore.

Reviews - What do customers think about This Sharpening?

An unforgettably feminine perspective on striving to achieve balance, and the sublime qualities of the mothering life.   Nov 6, 2006
The fourth collection by Ellen Dorewatson (Director of the Poetry Center at Smith College), This Sharpening is an anthology of brief, free-verse poems devoted to marriage, divorce, the longings of love, the pain of seeing love fall apart, and the consolation of motherhood when a long marriage ends. An unforgettably feminine perspective on striving to achieve balance, and the sublime qualities of the mothering life. "Consider": How easily you let go the atticful of books, / loss preferable to visiting past lives, just // as you want to eat years of words - chew / and spit out. Ever mild, you sleep now // with a fierceness under your pillow. / But with what tenderness you regard // the fish on your plate, sweet with hoisin / and nothing you were ever married to.
