Praise for "The Ground"
"A truly extraordinary book, the best first book by an American poet I've read in years." --Lawrence Joseph, "Commonweal"
Praise for "The Ground"
It most often seems to me that English is not a particularly beautiful language, but Rowan Ricardo Phillips's poetry argues eloquently against that. His ear for the language, sound and syntax, is inherited through Wallace Stevens and Hart Crane, clowningly playful while serious, repetitive while new, grounded in the city as well as a sheep meadow though highly philosophical and airy as a snow angel . . .when Phillips strides into his own rhythms and visions, as in "The Once and Future King of Ohio" (note the last, sublime perspective of this poem taking place in a rear view mirror), I think he is one of the best young poets I've read in years.--John Poch "32 Poems Magazine "
Phillips demonstrates extraordinary range and remarkable acuity . . . Consistently smart and clearly talented, Phillips is one to read now and to watch for in the future.--Diego Baez "Booklist "
