Poetry. In THE ROSE CONCORDANCE, Angela Carr sets up the rules for a game and then breaks them. The poems trace a constellation of fountains, whose waters lap from an erotic medieval poem through contemporary art and film. Like fountains, these poems resist any one enduring shape or reading. Carr's first book, Ropewalk, is an underground classic of highwire suspension, and her second, THE ROSE CONCORDANCE, is a fountain garden that invites the reader to tarry, and drink.
Angela Carr is the author of two poetry books, Ropewalk (2006; nominated for the McAuslan First Book Prize) and THE ROSE CONCORDANCE (BookThug, 2009). As a translator, she translated COÏT (BookThug, 2012) by Chantal Neveu. Originally from Montreal, Carr now lives in New York City, where she teaches Creative Writing.Author City: New York, NY USA
