Ruth Carr’s work is characterised by a compassionate vision that draws on personal experience and a heartfelt sense of closeness with other lives. In words pitched towards the immediate and intimate, her poems – lyrical, reflective, wistful – reveal the corresponding rhythms of one life to another across generations and relationships; parent to child, child to parent, wife to husband, friend to friend, but also speak out against injustice, cruelty and indifferencewith robust poignancy. There is a House, Ruth Carr’s long awaited first collection, has the measure of an inborn grace leading the reader, the poet and the poems towards an eventual homecoming.
