Harvesting Darkness is Robin Morgan’s eighth poetry collection, furthering a tonal arc begun with A Hot January and followed by her recent Dark Matter.

Robin shares her joys and intimacies which take centre stage and laments “the ringmaster’s desertion” as death hovers in the wings and aging unfolds, “while laughing at the pain / through the gridlocked traffic in my brain.” Light and shadow, sleep and wakefulness, holding tight and letting go, regret and contentment, order and chaos, battle it out simultaneously through the interplanetary and domestic worlds.
