Overview


Poetry. Vivid, propulsive, and compelling, Ellen Doré Watson's THIS SHARPENING maps with unflinching attention the unraveling of a marriage and the persistence of longing, the pain of loss and the persistence of pleasure in motherhood, and the stuff of everyday life--whether indulging fantasies of revenge, reveling in a child's kisses, or deconstructing a first date in 25 years. "Ellen Watson is an eloquent, passionate poet; tender, wildly inventive, with the wonder of childhood and a grown woman's comic sense. Watson's poetry is the real thing"--Robert Pinsky. "I am stupid with awe of Ellen Doré Watson. Reading her work does that to you, makes you a little drunk on the world, a little tipsy and stumble-tongued"--Claiborne Smith.
