Book description
Mathematician, scholar, astronomer, advisor to Queen Elizabeth I ... alchemist, occultist, heretic ... John Dee (1527–1608) is one of the most enigmatic figures in British history.

Using words and phrases from Dee’s diaries, Nigel Wood has constructed a series of poems that delve beneath the rumours and mythologies to offer a multifaceted portrait of a man seeking to understand the structure of the cosmos and his place within it. Accompanying the poems are visuals by Alan Halsey based on Dee’s transcriptions, charts and diagrams, his attempts to decode and interpret communications from other realms. Together the texts and images undertake a series of parallel explorations of his life and vision.
