"No other writer of our time and place was so diverse, attempted so much, and never lost sight of his intent."—Michael Ondaatje

a book of variations collects three difficult-to-find bpNichol texts—love, zygal, and art facts—which exemplify Nichol's signature eclecticism, a wondrous amalgam of fiction, concrete verse, comics, translations, and collage—this collection of ephemeral work may prove his most lasting contribution to contemporary literature.

bpNichol (1944–1988) was one of Canada's most adventurous, entertaining, and enigmatic poets. He is best known for his nine-book poem The Martyrology and his work on the TV show Fraggle Rock.

Stephen Voyce is an assistant professor of English at the University of Iowa.

Review:


"bpNichol was, and still is, the essential poet for so many of us." ― Michael Ondaatje

"This is bpNichol at his young, whimsical, charming, sweet, magical, formally inventive, childlike, zany, fecund, h-h-h-heavenly best. A total delight from beginning to beginning again." ― Charles Bernstein
