Poetry. Dan Beachy-Quick confirms the promise of his first book and greatly extends the range and scope of his writing with this brilliant fantasia on a theme by Herman Melville. This multi-layered poetic work engages with Melville's text as well as with myth and with the ideas of spiritual quest, the role of the writer, and the nature of language. Rewarding multiple readings and affording continual discoveries, SPELL is a major work for the new century by an assured and gifted poet. "Intelligent, compassionate, exquisite, Beachy-Quick's is a unique voice in contemporary poetry"—Cole Swensen.
