Sheepish Beauty, Civillian Love by Erín Moure
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 1994
Erin Mouré’s poetic journey explores the power of language and love in ways that are uncompromising and always exciting. Sheepish Beauty, Civilian Love, is an extended outcry on the will to tenderness even in the face of its absence, the power of words, and inner rythm to invoke tenderness. At the same time, Mouré never forgets that words have other uses and can be wielded by forces other than “sheepish beauty, civilian love.”
