There is, in this word, an act of force. Of devastation. The unmentionable is love, of course. But in Moure's poems, love is bound to a duty: to comprehend what it was that the immigrants would not speak of. Now they are dead; their children and grandchildren know but an anecdotal pastiche of Ukrainian history. On Saskatoon Mountain in Alberta where they settled, only the chatter of the leaves remains of their presence. What was not spoken is sealed over, unmemntioable. There is no one left to contact in the Old Country. Can the unmemntioable retain its silence, yet be eased into words? Can experience still be spoken?...

    One of my favourite Canadian writers: far more than typical "ConPo" Moure is able to find genuine emotional fireworks within the strictures of our (social/linguistic) language games.

    wowowow!So much of what I love about Moure's thinking and writing in My Beloved Wager (her essay collection) is enacted here. An anti-anaesthetic marvel!
