Acerca de


Like The X-Files or 2001: A Space Odyssey, Bryan D. Dietrich's book of poems The Assumption asks the question, "Are we alone?" Drawing parallels between today's popular science fiction mythologies and far older theological narratives, Dietrich wonders what moves us, what takes us up. Are there aliens? Is there a God? What's the difference? Navigating a constellation of possible answers--from ancient astronauts to traditional teleology to the death of Deity--this collection of interconnected sonnets opts instead for the beauty of the ineffable, setting its sights on the first star to the right and racing straight on past mourning.
