Stag's Leap Description

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the T.S. Eliot Poetry Prize Stag's Leap, Sharon Olds' stunningly poignant new sequence of poems, tells the story of a divorce, embracing strands of love, sex, sorrow, memory, and new freedom. In this wise and intimate telling - which carries us through the seasons when her marriage was ending - Sharon Olds opens her heart to the reader, sharing the feeling of invisibility that comes when we are no longer standing in love's sight; the surprising physical passion that still exists between a couple during parting; the loss of everything from her husband's smile to the set of his hip. Olds is naked before us, curious and brave and even generous toward the man who was her mate for thirty years and now loves another woman. As she writes in the remarkable title poem, 'When anyone escapes, my heart / leaps up. Even when it's I who am escaped from, / I am half on the side of the leaver'. Olds' propulsive poetic line and the magic of her imagery are as lively as ever, and there is a new range to the music - sometimes headlong, sometimes contemplative and deep. Her unsparing approach to both pain and love makes this one of the finest, most powerful books of poetry Olds has yet given us.

What left?

Something like a half-person
Left my young husband’s body,
And something like the other half
Left my ovary. Later,
The new being, complete, slowly
Left my body. And a portion of breath
Left the air of the delivery room,
Entering the little mouth,
And the milk left the breast, and went
Into the fat cuffs of the wrists.
Years later, during his cremation,
The liquids left my father’s corpse,
And the smoke left the flue. And even
Later, my mother’s ashes left
My hand, and fell as seethe into the salt
Chop. My then husband made
A self, a life, I made beside him
A self, a life, a gestation. We grew
Strong, in direction. We clarified
In vision, we deepened in our silence and our speaking.
We did not hold still, we moved, we are moving
Still - we made, with each each other, a moving
Like a kind of music: duet, then solo,
Solo. We fulfilled something in each other -
I believed in him, he believed in me, then we
Grew, and grew, I grieved him, he grieved me,
I completed him, he completed with me, we
Made whole cloth together, we succeeded,
We perfected what lay between him and me,
I did not deceive him, he did not deceive me,
I did not leave him, he did not leave me,
I freed him, he freed me.
