This article treats poetry books of two prominent Scandinavian poets from the new millennium from a gender-political perspective. Ursula Andkjær Olsen's debut book "Lulus sange og taler" (2000) and Ida Börjel's debut "Sond" (2004) are studied from a theoretical perspective based on Jean-Jacques Lecercle's ideas, in particular his concept of ”the remainder of language”. The articel shows how both poets take as their starting point a sort of aporetic stance on speech, by clearly showing a desire to speak, while simultaneously being painfully aware of the impossibility of doing just that, within the presently gendered discourse of speech. By employing Lecercle's theories, the article reveals how the choice of this aporetic standpoint, in itself, does enable elements of (in this case - gendered) language which have been shut out, to stand out, and become visible. Additionally, within this process the ideology of the discourse becomes obvious.
