Eckhart Cars consists of a series of 18 poems. Although conceptually related, the individual poems are formally distinct from one another. The book draws on a number of source texts, with a specific focus on representations of the human body and the physical world. Source texts range from Meister Eckhart through Schlegel to contemporary anatomical textbooks and out of date driver instruction manuals. While Eckhart Cars often foregrounds the body through its "translation" of temporal, bodily rhythms into writing, it also complicates this so-called translation by using found text and digitally-enhanced forms. The book could be situated in a genealogy running parallel to the sources mentioned above, but it also dialogues with current North American and UK poetries which stress formal innovation, and which problematise the issue of representation.
