O Cidadán by Erín Moure
Finalist for The A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2002
A candid and passionate consideration of citizenship viewed through the feminine, O Cidadán examines borders in language and in the body, to explore ways in which we might rethink nation and community in our era. Erin Mouré’s poems pulse: they shift and overlap, echo, capture sensual and political hinges in our social topography. Drawing on puns, shadows, images, charts and crosswords, Mouré’s poetic forms belie any settled, safe habitation of the page – extending the textual possibilities of language and expression, as Mouré grapples with how we might exist as citizens.
