Götterdämmerung is Len Gasparini's thirteenth book of poetry. What distinguishes this collection from his earlier work is the long title poem--a cri de coeur in the genre of ecopoetics. It launches a darkly acerbic yet lyrical assault on the Anthropocene. Also included are three essays, two of which revisit the work of poets Milton Acorn and Ted Plantos in a sociological context; and the other reflects on nature and poetry.
In 2018, I saw by the false dawn's light / the first robin of spring. / It lay on my doorstep. Dead. / If signs are taken for wonders, / what sign was this?
