A Chapbook of Poetry
Catherine Carter’s poetry collections include Larvae of the Nearest Stars, The Swamp Monster at Home, The Memory of Gills (all with LSU Press), and the chapbooks Marks of the Witch and Good Morning, Unseen (with Jacar Press). She is co-translator and co-editor of the only complete verse translation of John Gower’s 33,000-line medieval poem The Lover’s Confession (Medieval Institute Press, 2024). Her work has also appeared in Best American Poetry, Orion, Poetry, Ploughshares, RHINO, North Carolina Literary Review, Ecotone, and North American Review, among others. She is a professor of English at Western Carolina University in the Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, which is ancestral land of the Anikituwagi or Cherokee people; she works in teacher preparation. On a good day, she can re-queen a hive of honeybees and roll a whitewater kayak; on less good days, she collects stings, rock rash, and multiple contusions. As the sticker on her office door says, she likes poetry, long walks on the beach, and poking dead things with a stick.

In Catherine Carter’s latest chapbook, the poet considers the world beyond the surface: the lives of microbes, housekeepers, and history; tendrils of magic in both blessings and curses; and the magnetism of love, gin, sorrow, and the dark, cool earth. With her characteristic charm, compassion, and humor, Carter tells the stories of a world unseen, all with the uniquely poetic instinct to animate. Good Morning, Unseen is utter bounty in a small package—just as a chapbook should be.
