Overview

I've had me up my sleeve I've pulled me from my hat I've planted myself in the audience as the patsy I dare to decipher my tricks— safe I can never see through me. The Magician and The Magician's Assistant-- I've been both for so long . . . from here on in, all that's left is the magic.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.

Author Biography

Robin Morgan has published over 20 books—poetry, novels, political nonfiction, and the now-classic anthologies Sisterhood Is Powerful, Sisterhood Is Global, and Sisterhood Is Forever. Her first poetry collection, Monster, became an international cause célebrè; her nonfiction The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism, and her memoir, Saturday's Child, were bestsellers; her work is widely translated. A recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Prize in Poetry and numerous other honors, and a former Editor-in-Chief of Ms. magazine, she co-founded The Sisterhood Is Global Institute with Simone de Beauvoir and co-founded The Women's Media Center with Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem. An architect of contemporary U.S. feminism, she has also been an activist in the global women's movement for decades. She writes and hosts "Women's Media Center Live with Robin Morgan", a prize-winning radio broadcast/podcast with an international online audience at iTunes and www.WMCLive.com, and writes a popular weekly blog.
