From the archive:
Carl Phillips reads from Double Shadow (Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2011).
We also hear poems from The Rest of Love, Riding Westward, and A Quiver of Arrows: Selected Poems 1986-2006. We talk about Dickinson, Cape Cod, the influences of the Ancient Greeks, the lyric, love, and how poems are like prayers.
