Saskia Hamilton is an established and published poet who teaches at Barnard College and resides in New York. Her poetry as anthologized in Divide These is hallmarked with an spare but determined energy that results in the deft fashioning of word images that are intellectually provocative and emotionally riveting. Entrance: No one in the house but the two, the one/on the way to death, the other/on the way to earth. Above, the white sky, not ready/to rain, below, lush, the mid-summer garden,/the thrush, or the young of the thrush,/or the seventeenth generation thrush.//Below, a door opens. No one moves about/but you, in the white chair, typing.
