Better break out your sledgehammer — it's time for a little concrete!
Alphabet Game : A Bpnichol Reader [Paperback]
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. This new edition, curated by poet and antiquarian bookseller Nelson Ball, redresses this wrong.
One of the few Nichol books that is dedicated entirely to concrete poetry, Konfessions is, like all of Nichol's work, playful, sincere, explorative, intelligent and human. The Raven Illustrated Edition.
Collected Poems of Lenore Kandel. The fourteen poems in New Wave Canada are early lyric poems rewritten with a more refined ear after his experience of working exclusively with ideopomes and concrete.
