"And The Mind, Without Having It All Wondered If It Could"
Carl Phillips is a remarkably prolific poet, with something like nine books of poetry under his belt in the past fifteen years (you can find one of his earlier poems, 'Leda, After the Swan,' here), which is made even more interesting to me by the fact that he's only been publishing since his 30s. FSG will be releasing Quiver of Arrows, a collection of selected poems, next month.
Here is Carl Phillips reading 'Island' from his most recent collection, Riding Westward. Listen to the intro on this one as well--Phillips ties it together beautifully with the Bogan poem from earlier in the day.
