Erin Moure is one of the most consistently innovative, radically imaginative poets at work in Canada. With each book, Moure seeks to re-create writing from the ground up.

Little Theatres appears at a pressing historical crossroads, when we most need our language to be made restive again. Like the agua/water running through the collection -- at once lingual exchange, submersion, balm, and sustenance -- Moure's voices are as fluid, clear, animated, and shimmering with light and life as ever.

Galician and English intermingle in this collection like currents of the same river. How can we open the infinitely small spaces of Little Theatres in our own lives? Can they take the place of war? And who, exactly, writes them? Erin Moure? The unjustly ignored thinker Elisa Sampedrin? Or a speaker inside us finally willing to give Little Theatres its due attention? An intimate act of cultural and personal interflow, this work from a major poet has the power to alter our perception of where, and on what scale, the action is taking place.
