In her ambitious follow-up to Hagiography, acclaimed poet Jen Currin continues her unique exploration of the surrealist lyric, constructing a strong case that, in these frightening times, it may be the best poetic mode for capturing the complexities of lived experience. In tongues alternately vulnerable, defiant, resigned, and hopeful, The Inquisition Yours speaks to the atrocities of our time (war, environmental destruction, terrorism, cancer, and the erosion of personal rights), fashioning a tenuous bridge between the political and the personal. Trying to make sense of a world where even language is 'a danger, ' Currin's poems reject the old storylines in favour of a vigilant awareness, and wonder what might happen if people 'change the feared penmanship' and embrace a narrative that empowers everyone.
