Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "DARKLING is a book-length sequence of elegiac fragments, obsessive ruminations on the lives of the poet's Polish-Jewish parents, grandparents, as well as her own, filtered through the eyes of an extraordinarily clear-eyed contemporary witness. It would be easy to sentimentalize the events portrayed - the childhood memory, for example, of nearly losing one's little brother because of one's own carelessness - but Rabinowitz's technical brilliance, allusive texture, verbal and rhythmic precision, and especially her self-irony give these lyrics their razor edge, their air of hard-earned authenticity. This is a deeply moving book" - Marjorie Perloff.

Synopsis:

Called "a masterpiece" by one reviewer, Darkling is that rarest of rare books. Playing language like a fine instrument, the author weaves a tale in fragments of fragmented lives. Structured as an acrostic sequence based on Thomas Hardy's poem The Darkling Thrush, the poem is both monument to the Holocaust's victims and exposition for a new generation. A finalist for the ForeWord Magazine Poetry Book of the Year. Cover design by Chip Kidd.
