A Frame of the Book by Erín Moure
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 1999
In this new collection, Erin Mouré tests the boundaries of tenderness, grace, speech, sexual feeling, and a book’s ability to frame or hold the person, breaking the codes of language to reveal the carnality and 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 wordliness in all acts, all human bearing.
