A frame of the book: poems

Front Cover
Anansi, Apr 1, 1999 - Poetry - 127 pages
0 Reviews
In this brilliant new collection, Governor General's Award-winning poet Erin Mouri tests the boundaries of tenderness, grace, speech, sexual feeling, and a book's ability to frame or hold the person. With her typical wit and textual play, Mouri breaks the codes of language to reveal the carnality and torsional power of words. Her lines and frames uncover shadow meanings, highlight syllables as marks, and expose the abrasion, erasure, gaps, and cries that infuse a worldliness in all acts, all human bearing.
