Our Extraordinary Monsters is Vanessa Moeller's debut poetry collection which uses language(s) to build a written architecture where meaning(s) reside(s). The work resembles M.C. Escher's lithographs of impossible spaces but ones created from language and memories where investigations of self, identity and voice occur, where dichotomies exist and where correspondences are created, sent, delivered and read. Within this imaginary space Moeller explores her constantly shifting identity as a poet, as a woman, as a second-generation German-Canadian immigrant to Atlantic Canada. There is constant negotiation where the "I" becomes a filter through which experiences are sifted, molded, changed, archived, restructured and re-imagined onto the page with language(s).
