Here in There


Here in There, Angela Carr’s third book of poetry, is a lyrical petition to the human faculty of attention. In constant motion, the poems locate unusual instances of connection. They ask, do we give or pay attention? And what do we attend to? How do we decide what merits our attention? In a world where stillness is elusive, can we give or pay attention to anything but that which outlives our own distraction? Turning our attention to the senses, in Here in There, touch informs inscription, credit becomes an audible vibration. Carr’s poems form traceable and untraceable patterns, disappearing economies of material.


Carr achieves an exquisite balance of sensual fleshiness, confession, and conceptual abstraction.

Carr makes texts, bodies, and buildings pliable.
