The Future of Ecopoetics

In an age of record-breaking superstorms and environmental degradation, What Nature seeks—through poetry—to make sense of how we interact with and are influenced by nature.

"In time of crisis, we summon up our strength," wrote poet Muriel Rukeyser. This collection gathers poems--from the eve of the twenty-first century to the month following Trump's election--to mark a moment of political rupture, summoning the collective strength found in the languages of resistance and memory, subversion and declamation, struggle and hope. Poetry is a counterforce. We offer these poems to readers as Rukeyser did--"not walls, but human things, human faces."
