The Mood Embosser, Louis Cabri's first book of poetry, presents a series of impressions of 1990s social history as it is manifested in the lingering traces of everyday life. In order to address a wide variety of social structures and their attendant moods, these poems deploy a clutch of poetic forms: columns, long poems, the page as a 'field' of interrelated micro-poems, and series all jostle for space between the covers.

In The Mood Embosser, Louis Cabri writes toward chance's margin – the home of the things we don't know – with a pointed humour that pokes and prods among the detritus of culture.

About the Author:

Louis Cabri founded, with Rob Manery, the 'experimental writing group' (Ottawa, 1986-1995), producing literary events that include the ongoing Transparency Machine reading series. Since 1997, he has curated PhillyTalks, a poets' dialogue/newsletter series. Currently he is writing Poetics of Political Economy, a dissertation, and commutes between Calgary and Philadelphia.

From Publishers Weekly:

With the economic boom receding like a medical waste-bearing tide, Louis Cabri's The Mood Embosser, collecting work from the '90s, seems both prescient forecast and politicizing panacea, tracking "merge cartels," "Your `yes' vote" and "The Telepathic Parrot." A founder of Ottowa's Experimental Writing Group, Cabri curates UPenn's PhillyTalks readings and publications (www.phillytalks.org). He organizes the book in seven alternating `1' and `0' sections (one bit short of a standard byte), summing up the era ("It was the disappointment of products, it was the efficiency of the times") and bringing us up to the latest versions of Newspeak: "Today is the greatest-Day of the pie."

Sianne Ngai says of this book : " In ' The Mood Embosser,' we are hurtled, like a pie or 'fun-cake', into a space where language confronts Capital with its own violent slapstick . Under a title conjoining an intangible state of consciousness with a machine used to generate raised patterns soliciting one's touch, Cabri's explorations of social embodiment generate strange new music in sites where the 'psychic' and 'material' converge, ' The Brain is 80% rain, / cold, verging on / refusal - "It won't start.'' . This exciting and often hilarious book attacks globalization's self-validating rhetorics with a brilliant textural dysfunctionality, giving timely revivification to the politics of form." .
