In Sir Herbert Read's (1893-1968) last book before his death, this publication's 12 essays are intimate manifestations of Read's personal philosophies, in which he considers subjects like sincerity, fidelity, and anarchism in the abstract as much as in life itself. Read then situates these beliefs in conversation with the work produced by his contemporaries (including Eliot, Jung, Russell and others), making "The Cult of Sincerity" a work of active participation in the cultural community of which he played an inimitable part. 69-11
