Time, memory, love and death weave through this intricate and mesmerizing collection of poetry. In this book, Robert Moore has created a museum of stories, people and ideas “some real, some imagined “that captivate the reader. From Joan of Arc, to Rapunzel, to his father, Moore draws ideas and images out of the darkness, making them new and strange, using them to create a rich, shadowy tapestry of verse.
Robert Moore lives in Saint John, where he is Chair of the Department of Humanities and Languages at the University of New Brunswick. He has been an actor, a director and a playwright, as well as a poet. His poetry has been published in literary journals across Canada, including The Fiddlehead, Wascana Review, The New Quarterly, Prairie Fire, and The Gaspereau Review. He has been nominated for both the Atlantic Poetry Prize and the Margaret and John Savage First Book Award. Museum Absconditum is his second collection of poetry.
