The poems in Hemisphere explore what it means to be a daughter and
what it means to bear new life. Ellen Hagan investigates the world
historical hemispheres of a family legacy from around the globe and
moves down to the most intimate hemisphere of im-pending
motherhood. Her poems reclaim the female body from the violence,
both literal and literary, done to it over the years. Hagan
acknowledges the changing body of a mother from the strains of
birth-from the growing body of a child, to the scars left most
visibly by a C-section-as well as the changes wrought by age and,
too often, abuse. The existence of a hemisphere im-plies a part
seeking a whole, and as a collection, Hemisphere is a coherent and
cogent journey toward reclamation and wholeness.
