Poetry. In MULBERRY, Dan Beachy-Quick records the unraveling of the safe and singular into a multiplicity of unknowns. Impelled by metaphor and lilting repetition, MULBERRY seeks a sense of the world, and ultimately, finds a sense of the infinite. Affording continual discoveries, this is a major work for the new century by an assured and lavishly gifted poet. "Those keen to live and to worship in the present tense again will find good comradeship here in MULBERRY. Dan Beachy-Quick has accomplished the articulateness of stars and blossoms, of stars in blossom"—Donald Revell. "Here, in lyrics of singular intensity and originality, Dan Beachy-Quick weaves the green forms of his world"—Susan Stewart.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. In 18 untitled and highly personal poems sharing imagery and themes, plus a short prose introduction stating the book was written during "a year in which those whom I loved died," he tracks "[t]his world that through desire is seen," and manages to relate the caterpillar spinning and emerging from its cocoon to struggles in early American settlements, the minute expressions of love and the often invisible ebbing of loss. Onomatopoeic words ("calm the sentence the lake/ will calm/ breath gathers itself in a comma/ a comma informs the wave") and etymological explorations ("eagle at the root... borrowed from Old English egle... probably from aqua// water at the root of the bird") form a vivid associative chain.
