Rowan Ricardo Phillips



€ 14.95

`A spectacularly vibrant and continually surprising collection from one of the poetry world`s rising young stars `Who the hell`s heaven is this?` Rowan Ricardo Phillips offers many answers, and none at all, in Heaven, the piercing and revelatory encore to his award-winning debut, The Ground. Swerving elegantly from humor to heartbreak, from Colorado to Florida, from Dante`s Paradise to Homer`s Illiad, from knowledge to ignorance to awe, Phillips turns his gaze upward and outward, probing and upending notions of the beyond. `Feeling, real feeling / with all its faulty / Architecture, is / Beyond a god`s touch`--but it does not elude Phillips. Meditating on feverish boyhood, on two paintings by Chuck Close, on Shakespeare`s Measure for Measure, on a deadrooster by the side of the road in Ohio, on an elk grazing outside his window, his language remains eternally intoxicating, full of play, pathos, and surprise. `The end,` he writes, `like / All I`ve ever told you, is uncertain.` Or, elsewhere: `The onlyway then to know a truth / Is to squint in its direction and poke.` Phillips--who received a 2013 Whiting Writers` Award as well as the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award--may not be certain, but as he squints and pokes in the direction of truth, his power of perception and elegance of expression create a place where beauty and truth come together and drift apart like a planet orbiting its star. The result is a book whose lush and wounding beauty will leave its mark on readers long after they`ve turned the last page`-
