Erin Mour#65533;, a frequent nominee and winner of the Governor General's and other literary awards, is one of the most consistently innovative, imaginative poets at work in Canada. With each book, Mour#65533; seeks nothing less than to re-create the act of writing from the ground up. Little Theatres follows this approach, appearing at a timely crossroads, when we most need our language to come alive again. Like the water imagery that filigrees through this collection -- at once lingual exchange, submersion, balm, and sustenance -- Mour#65533;'s multiplicity of voices is fluid, clear, animated, and as shimmering with light and life as ever. Galician and English intermingle in this collection like currents of the same river. An intimate act of cultural and personal interflow, this new work from a major poet has the power to alter the reader's perception of where, and on what scale, the action is taking place.
