Margaret Corvid has been writing for many years, but this is her first published poetry collection. Her poems are accomplished and interesting. She shows confidence, innovation and intelligibility and the poems have a confident and easy structure. Above all, there is a variety and exuberance in the collection and verve in the subject matter.

​Poet, Shaindel Beers, author of Secure Your Own Mask, and finalist for the Oregon Book Award has written the back cover blurb:

 In Singing in the Dark Times, Margaret Corvid writes, ‘I’m just a poet, no Cassandra me,’ but what is it to be just a poet? Corvid incorporates the gifts of many poets who have come before her. There is something of Emily Dickinson’s deep playfulness in poems such as ‘School’, Robert Frost’s close appreciation for nature in poems such as, ‘All My Favourite Shows’, and Philip Larkin’s acerbic wit throughout. Unlike the people of Troy, I hope we are wise enough to keep listening to Corvid for years to come
