Book Description:Rooted in medieval Galician-Portuguese cantigas, most untranslated before now, Erin MourĂ©â€™s poems take off from the title phrase, literally Â“the place where falling is made.â€ť Also a word for waterfall, O Cadoiro opens the Â“falling-placeâ€ť that humans inhabit, where poems help heal without necessarily resolving anything. Where many poets tend to disdain the lyric form, MourĂ© embraces it Â— returning to its roots, reveling in its beauty, and exposing its surprising modernity.
