In these new lyric poems, Carl Phillips considers the substance of connection -- between lover and beloved, mind and body, talon and perch -- and its the cable of mutual trust between soaring figure and shadowed ground. Contemporary literature can perhaps 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.

In The Tether, his fifth book, Phillipss characteristically cascading poetic line is leaner and more dramatic than ever.
