A brighter word than bright : Keats at work by Dan Beachy-Quick ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Romantic poet John Keats, considered by many as one of the greatest poets in the English language, has long been the subject of attention from scholars who seek to understand him and poets who seek to emulate him. Bridging these impulses, this book is neither historical biography nor scholarly study, but instead a biography of Keats's poetic imagination. Here the noted poet Dan Beachy-Quick enters into Keats's writing--both his letters and his poems--not to critique or judge, not to claim or argue, but to embrace the passion and quickness of his poetry and engage the aesthetic difficulties with which Keats grappled. Combining a set of biographical portraits that place symbolic pressure on key moments in Keats's life with a chronological examination of the development of Keats-as-poet through his poems and letters, Beachy-Quick explores the growth of the young man's poetic imagination during the years of his writing life, from 1816 to 1820.--From publisher description
An impenetrable screen of purest sky : a novel by Dan Beachy-Quick ( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The narrative opens at an academic cocktail party, with all the pretension that such a party traditionally entails. In his wandering away from the action, Daniel, the narrator, comes across a copy of Wonders and Tales, a book that had meant much to him as a child, at least in part because his father had forbidden him to read it. The book becomes both a catalyst for Daniel's memory and an inspiration for his own struggles as a novelist trying to complete a manuscript. Beachy-Quick periodically returns us to Daniel's life as an academic, with his various literary loves (especially Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Ralph Waldo Emerson). In one splendid episode, Daniel substitutes for an indisposed friend and teaches a class on its final day of discussing Moby-Dick. Daniel shows himself to be, like Ahab, obsessed, though Daniel's obsession is with the beauty and power of the novel
Wonderful investigations : essays, meditations, tales by Dan Beachy-Quick ( )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the course of six critically acclaimed books--including a compelling meditation on Moby-Dick --Dan Beachy-Quick has established himself as "one of America's most significant young poets" (Lyn Hejinian). In Wonderful Investigations, Beachy-Quick broaches "a hazy line, a faulty boundary" between our daily world and one rich with wonder; a magical world in which, through his work as a writer, Beachy-Quick participates with a singular combination of critical intelligence and lyricism. Touching on the works of Emerson, Thoreau, Proust, and Plato, among others, Beachy-Quick outlines the problem
A whaler's dictionary by Dan Beachy-Quick ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Taking its inspiration - and, for that matter, its form - from Ishmael's abandoned "Cetological Dictionary" in Moby-Dick, this extraordinary, highly original work brings meditations on myth, representation, language, nature, consciousness, and notions of spiritual quest into constantly new relations. From "Accuracy" to "Wound," from "Adam" to "Void," and from "Babel" to "Silence," the cross-referential, highly associative entries make up an utterly singular work of art."--BOOK JACKET
