Description - Breakdown Lane by Robert Phillips
Since the 1970s, Robert Phillips has built a reputation as one of the outstanding American poets of his generation. Now, in his fifth full collection of verse, that reputation is both confirmed and consolidated, These are thoughtful, substantive poems that may make the reader smile and reflect. There are autobiographical poems about the poet's childhood on Delaware's Eastern Shore, elegies for the recent dead in American arts, extended metaphors on suburban existence, and a long section of poems in which the poet courts, wins, then loses the Muse. Both in voice and performance, "Breakdown Lane" is a consistent and engaging volume.
