-- Join author SHARON MARCUS for an evening of poetry, and the signing of her book THE SOUND OF DARKNESS, a sometimes dark, sometimes ecstatic collection of poems that the author has chosen to keep from earlier times.
Talking about these early poems, the author has said that the sound of darkness is, at least in part, the sound of the poet searching for a voice, a language, wisdom, a structure in meaning to speak about the truth which lies buried deep within the heart.
There is one important thing to listen for in THE SOUND OF DARKNESS, a certain deliberate resonance, a fine, still music pouring from the submerged mysticism so apparent in her later work.
Toronto based poet and novelist SHARON MARCUS has written nine books of poetry, four novels, a collection of short stories, three works of nonfiction, and a scattering of miscellaneous pieces, book reviews and the like. For the most part, her poetry is lyrical, ecstatic, searching for revelation, always with a passionate obligation to guard the gates of language, to protect rhythm and preserve substance.
