Robin Morgan’s seventh book of poetry.
In this major new book of poems—her seventh—Robin Morgan rewards us with the award-winning mastery we’ve come to expect from her poetry. Her gaze is unflinching, her craft sharp, her mature voice rich with wry wit, survived pain, and her signature chord: an indomitable celebration of life. This powerful collection contains the now-famous poems Morgan reads in her TED Talk—viewed online more than a million times and translated into 24 languages. Dark Matter is an unforgettable book.
An award-winning poet, novelist, journalist, activist, and best-selling author, Robin Morgan has published more than 20 books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
Her 1970 anthology Sisterhood Is Powerful has been widely credited with helping to start the contemporary feminist movement, and was cited by the New York Public Library as “One of the 100 most influential Books of the 20th Century.”
Recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Prize (Poetry) among other honors, and former Editor-in-Chief of Ms. Magazine, she founded the Sisterhood Is Global Institute, and co-founded (with Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem) the Women’s Media Center. She currently writes and hosts “WMC Live with Robin Morgan,” a syndicated weekly radio program and podcast with a national and international audience in 110 countries around the world.
