Poetry. "In poems of spiritual hunger and erotic receptivity, Philip Brady achieves utterance through formal gestures, 'revealing in every form and syllable / a double essence.' The pleasures of FATHOM are literary and sensuous, even when the poems address the events of 9/11. Through rhythmic cadences, 'a murmur rippling in lines', Brady brings the world into focus, 'purr[s] "accord" / into the ear of the continuum'. These are poems to savor as they lodge themselves within us"—Michael Waters. A professor at Youngstown State University adn the NEOMFA program, Philip Brady directs the YSU Poetry Center and Etruscan Press. For kicks, he plays in the New-Celtic band, Brady's Leap.
