Book cover for Reconnaissance by Carl Phillips, features an orange horse


“No contemporary ­poetry quite seduces like the work of the inimitable Carl ­Phillips,” writes Lisa Russ Spaar in the Los Angeles Review of Books about ­”Reconnaissance,” the 13th book of poems from ­Phillips, ­professor of English in Arts & ­Sciences. His poems are “subtle, nuanced, shifting ­negotiations of syntax, ­silence, and musing,” Spaar writes. “All of which can leave a reader breathless, envious, grateful.”
