Reviews

"Readers of Carl Phillips's poetry will have some preparation for the pleasures and insights of this volume, particularly its subtlety, originality, and historical range. Yet Coin of the Realm will also be admired as a prose work that stands alone. Incisive essays on George Herbert, the Psalms, the place of race and identity in habits of perception and reading, and the author's growth as a writer are unified by central questions of beauty and ethics that will be of interest to anyone who cares about literature." --Susan Stewart
