Cover of book titled Obiter Dicta

Obiter Dicta

Erick Verran

Stitched together over five years of journaling, Obiter Dicta is a lyrical compendium representing the transcription of twelve notebooks, since painstakingly reimagined for publication. This unschooled exercise in aesthetic thought, interlaced with quotations from hundreds of diverse authors, interrogates a wide array of subject matter through notes, commentary, observations, and musings. With lessons stolen from seemingly unrelatable disciplines, the restless candor of Erick Verran’s approach to philosophical and social inquiry will be familiar to readers of Dave Hickey’s Air Guitar and Mark Fisher’s K-Punk. Erick Verran is an independent scholar and poet whose writings include a study of overlooked ekphrasis in Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway and a critical explication of the dialogues in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
