A Frame of the Book: Poems
In this brilliant new collection, Governor General's Award-winning poet Erin Mour 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, Mour 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.
