"Quiver of Arrows "is a generous gathering from Carl Phillips's work that showcases the twenty-year evolution of one of America's most distinctive-- and one of poetry's most essential-- contemporary voices. Hailed from the beginning of his career for a poetry provocative in its candor, uncompromising in its inquiry, and at once rigorous and innovative in its attention to craft, Phillips has in the course of eight critically acclaimed collections generated a sustained meditation on the restless and ever-shifting myth of human identity. Desire and loss, mastery and subjugation, belief and doubt, sex, animal instinct, human reason: these are among the lenses through which Phillips examines what it means to be that most bewildering, irresolvable conundrum, a human being in the world. Phillips's sensibility as he questions morality, psychology, and our notions of responsibility is as startlingly original as the poems themselves, whose exacting standards for the line's flexibility and whose argument for a versatile, more muscular syntax bring to American poetry " something not unlike a new musical scale" ("The Miami Herald"). "Quiver of Arrows "is the record of a powerful vision that, in its illumination of the human condition, has established itself as a necessary step toward our understanding of who we are in the twenty-first century.

Life lessons from art
With love for the night patrol
Leda, after the swan
The glade
Fra Lippo Lippi and the vision of Henley
Death of the sibyl
The compass
King of hearts
Youth with satyr, both resting
A mathematics of breathing
What myth is
The trees
Alba : innocence
No kingdom
Alba : failure
A great noise
As from a quiver of arrows
From the devotions
A kind of meadow
"All art ..."
The gods leaving
Against his quitting the torn field
Would-be everlasting
The truth
The kill
Spoils, dividing
The point of the lambs
Roman glass
Regalia figure
The figure, the boundary, the light
As a blow, from the west
The clearing
By hard stages
The clarity
To break, to ride
Return to the land of the golden apples
Like stitches where the moths have made an opening
Late Apollo
All it takes
White dog
Fresco : cove and spur
If a wilderness
Here, on Earth
Like cuttings for a wreath of praise and ransom
Bright world
Radiance versus ordinary light
Bow down
To a legend
The messenger
Break of day
Riding westward
