Poems About Divorce-- Sharon Olds

Former New York State Poet under our sponsorship, and 2013 Pulitzer winner for poetry, Sharon Olds talks to The Guardian about Stag's Leap, her new collection of poems about her experience of going through a divorce.


The poems in the book, which also received the UK's T. S. Eliot prize, were written 15 years earlier. Olds delayed publishing them to protect the sensitivities of her children.
