Julia McCarthy

All the Names Between is Julia McCarthy's third collection. Grounded in the experience of presence in which the external and internal meet, a crossroads of consciousness where "a language without a name / remembers us" and the poem is a votive act, All the Names Between reflects the shadow-light of being, of what is and what isn't, of the seen and the unseen, the forgotten and the remembered — here "every elegy has an ode at its centre / every ode has an elegy around its edges."
