Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193410356X, Paperback)

Poetry. "MIMER is about the mutability of experience, the contexts that contain mutability, and the stories we use to make sense of it all. 'We live by our mythologies,' says Lance Phillips, 'and those mythologies are evolving as quickly as details can shake themselves free.' The fourth book in an ongoing series that maps the personal to the mythological, MIMER is erotic and ecstatic, taking those details and investigating what makes them honest. 'With their uncanny quality of attention and gnomic precision Lance Phillips's brilliant poems readily accord neither with our normative arrangements of language nor with our manifest schemas of perception. This book is both an ingenious meditation on, and a 'disportraiture' of, the transitory and miraculous nature of the world's assemblages, our provisional and thrilling successes at description and understanding, our incapacity for thoroughly fathoming the real, and the necessity of continuing to try.'"—Gabriel Gudding
