Margaret Avison has long been considered one of Canada's most respected writers, and in a career that now spans more than forty years, she continues to work at the height of her powers. In this brilliant collection of new poems, Avison writes of our home on this "little rollicking orb," exhilaratingly situated in the immensity of space, and of life in and out of phase with the divine, the measure of all. Deep, subtle, and wide thinking is couched in a crystalline style, and nobody makes taut sentences more flush with meaning. Momentary Dark is a celebration of the world, but not without edge and a quiet challenge to care for a damaged earth and all its citizens equally, including a veritable populace of city trees graciously and beautifully linking the earth and the sky.
