Moure writes mainly in English, but also in Galician and French and has translated from Spanish, Portugese, Galician and French into English. She has described her poetry as a way of “thinking about and in spacings, placings, stagings, and how to think and be in such spacings – always in language, and always spatial, physical, because we are sited, incorporated beings.” Her 2002 work O Cidadán sprang from the need to rethink the notion of the citizen, and insisted that it is the crossing of borders and leakages in borders that makes entities (countries, persons, communities) possible. Of Moure’s later books, Little Theatres (2005) includes poems in Galician in a book destined for English-language readers, and her latest work, O Cadoiro, explores the radical modernity of the lyric voice. Moure’s practice includes both creation and translation, and she does not distinguish between them.

The Bangor events on the 24th feature Chus Pato, one of the most singular and acclaimed voices in contemporary Spanish poetry. She writes in Galician, and her poems have been widely translated. Erin Moure's translation of from m-Talá (Nomados, 2003) and Charenton, just published by Shearsman Books, brings her unique perspective and political energy into an encounter with the English language.
