Konfessions of an Elizabethan fan dancer by B. P Nichol( Book )

21 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Better break out your sledgehammer - it's time for a little concrete! Concrete poetry, that is. Concrete what? Well, it's poetry that's a lot like art - its meaning comes from what it looks like instead of the order of the words, so it's full of great visual puns and word puzzles. And one of its foremost practitioners is bpNichol, one of Canada's best experimental writers. Konfessions of an Elizabethan Fan Dancer is Nichol's very first book. Originally published in England by Bob Cobbing in 1967, and then in Canada in 1973 by Nelson Ball's Weed/Flower Press, it has been unavailable for a dog'

17 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All of Nichol's work is stamped by his desire to create texts that are engaging in themselves as well as in context, and to use indirect structural and textual devices to carry meaning. In The Martyrology different ways of speaking testify to a journey through different ways of being. Language is both the poet's instructor and, through its various permutations, the dominant 'image' of the poem. The [nine] books of The Martyrology document a poet's quest for insight into himself and his writing through scrupulous attention to the messages hidden in the morphology of his own speech."--Frank Davey

Originally twelve years in the making! Featuring a cast of thousands. It still stars the letter H, and introduces Probable Systems, Negatives, and the Actual Life of Language! Readers' hearts will pound as they see H's turn into I's before their very own eyes. They'll thrill as words fall apart only to create other words. They'll gasp as bpNichol collaborates with the dead. They'll shake your head in disbelief as he walks the line between fact and fiction one step beyond into the twilight zone of 'pataphysics
