Poetic 'Paratext' on bpNichol's "The Martyrology: Books 1 & 2"
Conrad DiDiodato has recently written a poetic 'paratext' on bpNichol's "The Martyrology: Books 1 & 2". Using a single page from Gilles Deleuze-Felix Guattari's "A Thousand Plateaus" as a palimpsest, he has composed a series of poetic reflections on a single line from Book 2: "saint of no-names" against both the text and illustration found on Deleuze-Guattari's page.
