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.
