In Morning Knowledge, Kevin Hart grieves the passing of his father, while continuing his unique interlacing of the spiritual and the sensuous. A book of elegies and love poems, prayers and lullabies, a book in which poems sing about a museum of shadows and about rats and afternoons, all wrapped in quatrains, Morning Knowledge is a major book by a poet read and loved throughout the world.

"Spiritual yet visceral, learned yet passionate, Australian poet Kevin Hart's work occupies a special place in the libraries of poetry readers throughout the world. . . . Shrouded in hope, Morning Knowledge sees Hart mourning his father's death while carrying on a decades-long project of distilling matters of the spirit and heart into rich and contemplative poetry. . . . Morning Knowledge is Kevin Hart at his peak, alive with deeply lived experience and persistent joy."--Readings Monthly
