Praise for Living Weapon
“Over and again, Phillips strives—within his own poems—to chip away at an explicit definition of what exactly we mean when we say ‘poetry’ . . . Throughout the collection, Rowan Ricardo Phillips refuses to abandon the past; instead, he interrogates its ghosts—in all their terrible admixture of violence and beauty—and, despite every reason not to, he sings.” —Will Brewbaker, Los Angeles Review of Books

“In his dazzling third collection, Phillips (Heaven) explores social ills while celebrating poetry’s ability to provide solace and sense during times of upheaval . . . Phillips’s latest is lyrical, imaginative, and steeped in a keen understanding of current events.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The truths of Phillips’s book are plain and perceptive, harsh and oddly soothing.” —Nick Ripatrazone, The Millions
