A Hot January: Poems 1996-1999

A Hot January: Poems 1996-1999

Robin Morgan
4/5 (8 ratings)
Robin Morgan's work, celebrated for its vindication of female experience and its evocation of the zeitgeist, is here intensely personal and powerful in new ways. In her sixth book of poems, prize-winning poet Robin Morgan undertakes a radical departure from her previous work, as she locates the landscape of her vision in the stark isolation of a self confronting love's aftermath, its losses, and its undeniable betrayals. In poems documenting a seven-year silence, Morgan's voice emerges markedly different, sounding a singular passage through a private hell of despair, the madness of a "Hot January," to a place of furious peace in which the artist weeps "to recognize the self I'd fled to find."
