Poetry. "In his remarkable magazine 'Tyuonyi,' Phillip Foss is realizing a vital new synthesis of seemingly disparate tendencies in North American poetry. Foss's collection of poems, THE COMPOSITION OF GLASS, achieves something of the same effect. Foss's poems, especially the long sequence called 'Virga. Icy Gate,' are possessed of an elegiac resistance that is ruminatively intoxicating. Make no mistake about it: Foss's reflections are as convincing as cliffs" -Charles Bernstein.
Phillip Foss is the author of fifteen books and chapbooks of poetry, most recently STUDY IN TRANSHUMANCE, THE VALLEY OF CRANES, and THE WORLD'S DESCRIPTION, from Singing Horse Press. Additionally, he has received the Fund for Poetry Award and two Poetry Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.
