About Disquiet

The Book of Disquiet is a book of the dead, written for the living.

Assembled posthumously in an order that was never intended by its author, The Book of Disquiet performs an act of abiogenesis with each reading, creating new life from its incompatible parts.

The poems you will find here are compiled at random by a machine language. This website dismantles and rebuilds the full text of Richard Zenith’s translation of The Book of Disquiet upon each viewing, to create a new piece of literature from the book for your perusal.

You can save and share the poems you find, if you wish. Or you can leave them behind, and they will be lost forever in cyberspace.

After all, “it’s all fragments, fragments, fragments…”

D. J. Quinn
