About this product
- DescriptionThe Unmemntioable joins letters that should t be joined. 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 t speak of. Now they are dead; their children and grandchildren kw 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 t spoken is sealed over, unmemntioable. There is one left to contact in the Old Country. Can the unmemntioable retain its silence, yet be eased into words? Can experience still be spoken?
