Synopsis

Planetary Noise Selected Poetry of Erin Moure by Erin Moure

Planetary Noise: Selected Poetry of Erin Moure gathers four decades of poetry from a celebrated Canadian poet and translator who has persistently reconfigured the linguistic and material relations of English. Moure's poems and networked sequences are hybrid and often polylingual; they work with contradiction, paradox, and verbal detritus - linguistic hics and blips often too quickly dismissed as noise - to create new conditions for thought and pleasure. From postdramatic theatre to queer and feminist theory, from the politics of citizenship and genocide to the minutiae of digital poetics, from the clamor of love to the shadows of grief and memory, Moure has joyously toppled hierarchies of meaning and parasited dominant discourses to create poetry that crosses borders, embracing hope, not war. This volume, edited by poet and literary scholar Shannon Maguire, also features an extensive introduction to Moure's poetry, a section of poetry by others translated by Moure, and an afterword on translation by the poet.

Reviews

Drawing on four decades of writing by Canadian poet and translator Moure (Kapusta), this rare volume reveals and celebrates the trajectory of her mind.(...)From her early lean lyrics though recent genre-defying poems located at the intersections of archive, performance, and translation, Moure's abiding inquiries into the limits of subjectivity and language continually push into new formal, musical, and intellectual territory. --Publisher's Weekly
