Thinking Egg

Thinking Egg

by Jacqueline Brown

Winner of the Published 1992 Arvon/Observer International Poetry Competition

...I'm a woman thinking egg
and staggering under its weight.

Thus Jacqueline Brown concludes her memorable and moving sequence of poems on female infertility.

...the poet has a story to tell and is telling it with flair and imagination, not merely inviting sympathy. At best, she succeeds in objectifying her predicament as few contemporary poets can.

Matthew Francis, P N Review

It's easy to see why the judges... chose [this] as the winning entry. In subject and theme it's both solidly traditional and excitingly innovative. It is the work of a woman who has not just lived, but who has watched what was happening to her and to other people while she was doing it.
