Stay this Moment: The Autopsy Lyrics, Acts 1 & 2 by Emily Carr

from 8.00

Stay this Moment: The Autopsy Lyrics, Acts 1 & 2, an excerpt from Emily Carr’s longer novella-in-verse, constructs a sexually charged patchwork of characters and themes, all predicated on a skepticism toward both the world that contains them and that which they contain.

As the alternating horizon of the text demands that we constantly re-orient ourselves to the page, Carr’s characters risk their own bodies to probe the edges of desire.  There is Achilles—virile and self-destructive, la Belle—an unhinged femme fataliste, and No bird—a trickster, or the absence of a trickster.  These fragmented personas form a modern mythology that compels us to abandon the old ways of knowing who we are and what we love.  Carr  withholds the complete definition of modern romance, placing us instead against the “knife edge of it.”
