Abstract:

Explores the dichotomy between belief and disbelief, and the human need to believe, in a poetic study of the tension between abandon and control, the physical and the spiritual. In The Rest of Love, his seventh book, Carl Phillips examines the conflict between belief and disbelief, and our will to believe: Aren't we always trying, Phillips asks, to contain or to stave off facing up to, even briefly, the hard truths we're nevertheless attracted to? Phillips's signature terse line and syntax enact this constant tension between abandon and control following his impeccable interior logic, "passionately austere."
