A stunning new collection of poems from the author of Speak LowComparing any human life to a restless choir of impulses variously in conflict and at peace with one another, Carl Phillips, in his eleventh book, examines the double shadow that a lifeMoreA stunning new collection of poems from the author of Speak LowComparing any human life to a restless choir of impulses variously in conflict and at peace with one another, Carl Phillips, in his eleventh book, examines the double shadow that a life casts forth: now risk, and now / faintheartedness. In poems that both embody and inhabit this double shadow, risk and faintheartedness prove to have the power equally to rescue us from ourselves and to destroy us. Spare, haunted, and haunting, yet not without hope, Double Shadow argues for life as a wilderness through which theres only the questing forward--with no regrets and no looking back.Double Shadow is a finalist for the 2011 National Book Award for PoetryWinner of the 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Prize for PoetryA Boston Globe Best Poetry Book of 2011
