Carl Phillips on Newshour
I wanted to highlight Carl Phillips' Speak Low for a couple reasons. First, to congratulate the poet on his selection as a 2009 National Book Award finalist. The citation reads: "His poems offer us hope through the constellation of the body and soul, suffering and salvation, and, ultimately, many truths."
Second, Phillips was featured on Newshour: Art Beat last April, where he read some of his work.-Ryan
