Description
From biblical times to the present, poetry has drawn us to and connected us with the natural world. John Felstiner—author of the biography Paul Celan: Poet, Survivor, Jew and Translating Neruda: The Way to Machu Picchu—here explores the rich legacy of nature poems and explores their force and beauty as well as their import. His brief and lucid chapters present those voices that have most strongly spoken for the natural world, from the Romantics through Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson to Elizabeth Bishop and Gary Snyder, and considers how poetry has shaped our view of the natural world.

"A really smart account of how American poets have understood the natural world. This book will be of great use to the poetry-challenged like me, who need help slowing down enough to take in what's being said. It may not save the earth (though it will surely help), but nature poetry can help save you."—Bill McKibben

"John Felstiner's study is a remarkable attempt to bring the rich tradition of nature poetry to our aid in the current and ongoing ecological crisis. I find particularly moving his extraordinary range of sympathy for the very varied poets he discusses."—Harold Bloom
