Abstract
In her writing, Canadian poet Erín Moure combines challenging formal experimentation with keen social and political awareness; Moure, indeed, insists that words and ideas always affect social practices. Accordingly, Moure offers a poetics of protest that reveals and mourns oppression and exclusion. In particular, Moure draws attention to the ways in which social and economic structures—specifically, the structures of capitalism—perpetuate human alienation, obscuring or destroying the dynamic relationships both within and among individuals. After a contextualizing introduction, this thesis explores Moure’s depiction of personal and interpersonal alienation in Empire, York Street, The Whisky Vigil, Wanted Alive, and Domestic Fuel. The conclusion, further, will begin to examine how this theme develops in Moure’s continuing poetic practice. Throughout the thesis, I place Moure’s poetic texts in conversation with her extra-poetic writings and with Marxist critical theory, yet I ground my study primarily in a close reading of Moure’s poetry.
