Reissued for the first time in a handsome A List edition, the Governor General’s Literary Award–winning collection from one of Canada’s most profoundly inventive and eminent poets, featuring an introduction by award-winning poet Sonnet L’Abbé.

The poetry in the Governor General’s Award–winning collection Furious is charged with Erin Moure’s characteristic energy and wit as she explores the limits of pure reason and the language of power. There is, too, a fresh and often celebratory look at love, and, in an unusual finale, “The Acts,” Moure challenges us to explore a feminist aesthetic: of thinking, of the page, of working life and the possibility of poetry.
