Description

This work explores the circular relationship between notation and faith in bp Nichol's life-long poem, "The Martyrology". Pun and paradox, the ability to believe simultaneously in apparently contradictory things, lie at the heart of Nichol's writing, which this work discusses. This work proposes "pataphysics" as a useful category for understanding Nichol's poetics.
