Love Poems for Supervillains

    By Natalie Zina Walschots

  Canada $16.95   

DOOM: Love Poems for Supervillains is an edgy and erotic investigation of comic book evildoers.

These poems employ a language that is highly technical and dense, but it becomes witty, intimate and even tender in its specificity. DOOM addresses the results of abuses of power and presents a case study on the pathology of villainy.

"Natalie Zina Walschots [is] a writer who engages with the aesthetics of sadomasochism in order to generate elegant, sensual poetry that writhes inside the shackles of its own linguistic constraint... [she] treats each poem as a miniature, theatrical tableau — a 'passion play,' in which she forces language to submit to her will, beating its grammar into a stupor of ecstatic nonsense." — Christian Bök, The Poetry Foundation
