Whaler's Dictionary by Dan Beachy-Quick

Book Description

Taking both form and inspiration from Ishmael's abandoned "Cetalogical Dictionary," this highly original work muses on myth, representation, language, nature, consciousness, notions of spiritual quest, and other elements of Melville's masterpiece. From "Accuracy" to "Wound," "Adam" to "Void," "Babel" to "Silence," these cross-referential, highly associative entries comprise an utterly singular work of art. A Whaler's Dictionary is the mesmerizing product of a total immersion into one of the greatest novels in the English language.

Impenetrable Screen of Purest Sky by Dan Beachy-Quick Impenetrable Screen of Purest Sky, Paperback (September 2013)

Tree of Life meets In Search of Lost Time in this contemporary tale of loss and the power of story.

Wonderful Investigations by Dan Beachy-Quick Wonderful Investigations, Paperback (March 2012)

Touching on the works of Emerson, Thoreau, Proust, and Plato, among others, this title outlines the problem of duality in modern thought - the separation of the mind and body, word and referent, intelligence and mystery, human and natural - and makes the case for a fuller kind of nature poetry, one that strives to overcome this false separation.
