about

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.
