WSW (West South West) by Erín Moure
Finalist for The QSPELL Prize for Poetry in 1990
In WSW, Erin Mouré’s " west" is not simply an outer landscape framing people’s lives; it is an inner landscape that inhabits the body and codes it. In poems that move inside this West South West of the body, Mouré explores further the source and structure of voice, memory and desire that give the body its identity. WSW takes the public, feminist voice of Furious and brings it closer to a personal world — to grief, love, forgiveness, and the possibility of consolation and responsibility in language itself.
