The Naming of Facts

Varzi, Achille C.

"The naming of facts is a difficult matter / it isn’t just one of your holiday games / You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter / When I tell you, a fact may have TWO DIFFERENT NAMES." A versification of a disturbing philosophical tribulation, after T. S. Eliot’s ‘The Naming of Cats’
