Publisher Comments:

The Award-winning poet Carl Phillips grapples with issues of authority, identity, and beauty in these sensual and deeply intelligent essays

The "coin of the realm" is, classically, the currency that for any culture most holds value. In art, as in life, the poet Carl Phillips argues, that currency includes beauty, risk, and authority-values of meaning and complexity that all too often go disregarded. Together, these essays become an invaluable statement for the necessary-and necessarily difficult-work of the imagination and the will, even when, as Phillips states in his title essay, "the last thing that most human beings seem capable of trusting naturally-instinctively-is themselves, their own judgment."

About the Author

Carl Phillips is the author of seven books of poetry, most recently Rock Harbor and The Tether, which won the Kingsley Tufts Award; he is also the translator of Sophocles' Philoctetes. Phillips teaches at Washington University in St. Louis.
