Analysis and comments on The Division Of Parts by Anne Sexton

Comment 1 of 1, added on June 14th, 2010 at 7:01 PM.
Best of Anne Sexton

In my view, this poem is the very best of Anne Sexton. She shows an
uncertainty in her belief her mother loves her, that love being like a ball
rolling away, but sometimes being caught: "to catch as catch can."
