Shadow Blight considers the pain and isolation of pregnancy loss through the lens of classical myth. Drawing on the stories of Niobe-whose monumental suffering at the loss of her children literally turned her to stone-and others, this collection explores the experience of being swept away by grief and silenced by the world. Skirting the tropes ("o how beautiful / the poets make our catastrophes"), MacAskill interweaves the ancient with the contemporary in a way that opens possibilities and offers a new language for those "shut up in stillness."
