Product Description


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)
