Mulberry is Dan Beachy-Quicks dazzling third collection of poetry, and in it he further solidifies his place as one of our most important experimentalyet entirely lyricalpoets. The work of a still-rising star, here the experiment is almost otherworldly: see and hear the poet as silkworm, weaving meditations on nature, art, history, philosophy, and the self. Here is a layered, intricately voiced and utterly assured poet who, with magnifying glass in one hand and telescope in the other, shows us the way to something new and delightful with every reading.

The prolific Beachy-Quick (Spell , 2004) returns to the familiar lyric territory of his arresting debut in this challenging third book: the intensifying, fragmenting and distorting powers of language as it relates self to world.
