Taking the explorer, Vitus Bering, as its point of departure, this innovative and extraordinary novel explores dreams and waking, reality and loss. Why do we give primacy to waking rather than dream experience? What is the nature of symbol? What might the concept of authorship mean?
Linguistically playful, lyrical and poignant, Vitus Dreams explores these questions through surprising and convincing characters: from Ulysses to John Franklin, from the wives left behind to Vitus Bering himself. Weaving mythology with visually inventive passages, the text ranges from Russia to Bruges, from sea to land, from meta-fiction to concrete poetry.
