Description

The poetry in the Governor General’s Award–winning collection Furious is charged with Erin Moure’s characteristic energy and wit as she explores the limits of pure reason and the language of power. There is, too, a fresh and often celebratory look at love, and, in an unusual finale, “The Acts,” Moure challenges us to explore a feminist aesthetic: of thinking, of the page, of working life and the possibility of poetry.

Editorial Review

Praise for Erín Moure and Furious:
WINNER, 1988 GOVERNOR GENERAL’S LITERARY AWARD FOR POETRY

Praise for Erín Moure and Kapusta:
FINALIST, 2015 A.M. KLEIN PRIZE FOR POETRY
Kapusta continues Moure’s exploration of the boundaries of language, form, and technique. The French deconstructionist [Jacques Derrida] would surely approve.” — Quill and Quire
“Like particles in the air, Kapusta pollinates the present with the ash of the past, constantly reconfiguring the relationships between identity and history, imagination and reality, speaking and speaking for (someone), being nowhere and being (now)here, eternity and the ‘twinkling of an eye.’ The boundaries between categories and binaries become elastic: for Moure, ‘theories of the stars’ apply as much to Ptolemy as they do to Dean Martin and Perry Como.” — The Puritan

Praise for Erín Moure and The Unmemntioable:
KOBZAR LITERARY AWARD FINALIST
“A stunning book.” — Winnipeg Free Press
“The Unmemntioable has much of value to share on family, history, memory, and above all, experience.” — Arc
“Ambitious and laudable.” — Quill & Quire
“[Moure] understands spaces and the art of language’s fickle and fleeting ways. Her strength as a poet is simple diction, she toys with layout; how the words also act as visuals on the page . . . Consider The Unmemntioable a lease on humanity; the tenants are love and loss.” — Telegraph Journal

Praise for Erín Moure and O Resplandor:
“Moure’s ambition is to transform the performance of poetry into poetry itself . . . it makes for a remarkable reading experience.” — Harvard Review
“Heady, heartbreaking, visionary — the words to describe O Resplandor.” — Event
“A new book by Erín Moure is always an exciting event in Canadian literary history . . . This is a tour-de-force of lyric writing.” — Prairie Fire
“O Resplandor is an elegy to love, a testament to friendship.” — Matrix
“Moure has composed a joyfully aching, tough, and vulnerable poetry of lyrical splendor, a liberated culmination of the transgressive, language-based that has so richly, powerfully, and playfully hinged her poetry, essays, and translations to date.” — Winnipeg Free Press
