Book Description

February 2010

Here is inventive new poetry from one of our most original and admired poets: Erin Moure, two-time winner of the Governor General's Literary Award for Poetry, winner of the Pat Lowther Memorial Award, and a finalist for the prestigious Griffin Poetry Prize.

Moure's brilliant collection explores the idea that the act of reading contains all the experiences of the body itself: love, splendour, travel, doubling, loss. The "resplandor" of the title refers to the radiance of the body when the language of the book flows into ears and eyes. In unexpected ways -- through impossible translation, anachronistic journeys, and a fictional mystery that involves a search for a translator who exists only in the future beyond the book itself - O Resplandor confounds notions of authorship and translation, all while conveying the clamour over love and loss. Richly challenging and charged with Erin Moure's distinctive energy, O Resplandor is a work about the powerful light contained in the human body, in translation, and in poetry - even as it shows how these are all one and the same in the end: inventions.

Product Description

Review

Moure has composed a joyfully aching, tough and vulnerable poetry of lyrical splendor, a liberated culmination of the transgressive, language-based that has so richly, powerfully and playfully hinged her poetry, essays and translations to date. (Jennifer Still Winnipeg Free Press 2010-04-24)

... a layered, erudite, tender book, aspiring, inspiring, declarative, a book of principled assertion and lovely description. (Joan Guenther Influency Salon 2010-05-16)

O Resplandor is an elegy to love, a testament to friendship... (Erin Wunker Matrix Magazine 2010-07-11)

A new book by Erin Moure is always an exciting event in Canadian literary history...This is a tour-deforce of lyric writing. (John Herbert Cunningham Prairie Fire 2010-11-02)

Heady, heartbreaking, visionary - the words to describe O Resplandor... (Nick Tran Event Magazine 2010-10-01)

Moure’s ambition is to transform the performance of poetry into poetry itself . . . it makes for a remarkable reading experience. (Broc Rossell Harvard Review 2011-08-22)
