About this book

Search Procedures

Erin Moure

Erin Moure traces a woman's poetic trajectory through the instability of any search and any procedure. Everything touched upon is called into question as Moure explores the limits of our notions of language, and plays with the power of words to convey meaning or intelligibility, as well as their fallibility.
