Abstract:

In these twenty-eight new poems, Carl Phillips considers the substance of connection, between lover and beloved, mind and body, talon and perch, and tends the cable of mutual trust between soaring figure and shadowed ground.

Contemporary literature can claim no poetry more clearly allegorical than that of Carl Phillips, whose four collections have turned frequently to nature, myth, and history for illustration; still, readers know the primary attributes of his work to be its physicality, grace, and disarming honesty about desire and faith. The Tether gives us a lyric poet at the height of his skill.
