Richard Carr

Tao Te Butterfly

"A part-time instructor of English at Bowling Green State University, Richard Carr has an NEA Grant, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Pulitzer Prize on his wish list. In the real world, he has published poems and essays on poetry in a number of small and medium print journals, and his first book of poems is forthcoming from Singular Speech Press. Two other manuscripts continue to travel the country in search of loving homes. Tao Te Butterfly is a small sequel to a much larger hypertext, an as yet unpublished collection of 125 interlinked poems exploring the Butterfly persona in depth and from a variety of perspectives. Both texts are structurally twisted and miasmal so as to depict the workings of a twisted and miasmal mind. Whether that mind be Butterfly's or Richard's has not yet been established, but the author would welcome feedback on the issue. Clues may be discovered in episode 10 of the e-zine Enterzone, where Richard recounts the entire history of rat civilization. In one sentence."
