Pamphlet stitched binding; blue printed wrappers. "Noah Webster's American Dictionary of the English language (1828): a protracted definition of an emerging nation-state; the narrative of its author's conversion; an attempt to restore a language to roots that precede the Tower of Babel. As such, it can be read as a map of a wilderness; but it is also a wilderness unto itself, haunted by countless ghosts, within which the reader becomes lost. These poems record of a series of encounters with those ghosts."--Author's note. Designed by Kristen Gallagher of Handwritten Press.
