Review of Emilia Phillips’s Beneath the Ice Fish Like Souls Look Alike

I’m grateful to Kyle McCord and AMRI for allowing me the opportunity to review Emilia Phillips’s terrific chapbook “Beneath the Ice Fish Like Souls Look Alike” from Bull City Press. I hope you’ll read the review and then the book! “Beneath the Ice…,” if nothing else (though it is a lot else), is a showcase for the power of detail in verse, how a skilled poet can tell a story without an overt narrative framework and its usual devices. An extremely enjoyable and satisfying read.
