“Dennis Phillips’ poems are not only smart and beautifully made, they confront the world with considerable courage.”

Elizabeth Robinson
Boulder, Colorado


“[T]he poetry of Dennis Phillips…along with its finely modulated unquiet, its grace under pressure, its intellective/affective generosity over three decades of rock-steady writing, and the cache of qualities still to be discovered…can I say, also, that it is lovely?”

George Albon
San Francisco
