Overview

The Absolute Is a Round Die is a work of metaphysical meditation, a verbal mural painting, a restless search for a way to speak the unspeakable, know the unknowable, attain the unattainable.

Reviews

The Absolute is a Round Die is a work of passionate wisdom, with poetry that opens endless possibilities for creating the improbable. [..] It is a book that cannot be read at one sitting : its meaning alternately escapes one?s grasp and then returns, with an overwhelming force that calls out to our intelligence. [...] Happiness and poetry are indeed sometimes intertwined. ? Hugues Corriveau, Lettres québécoises, fall 2007 In his quest for images as transparent as water in the desert, Acquelin?s work is rooted in a poetic tradition inspired by the Middle East, with a strange clarity that at times brings to mind the poetry of Alain Grandbois and Omar Khayyám. [...] Acquelin is never at a loss for marvels, proclaiming that ?Joy lies in burning.?? Maxime Catellier, Ici, May 3-9, 2007
