Summary
  • Focusing on the work of A.R. Ammons, Wendell Berry, W.S. Merwin, and Gary Snyder, America's foremost ecopoets, Scigaj explores each poet's depth of involvement in nature and his ability to use ordinary language that models biocentric ways of seeing nature. Just as a sustainable society does not depreciate its resource base, so a sustainable poetry does not restrict interest to textuality
  • Over the past thirty years many poets have exhibited an increasing sensitivity to ecological thinking. But Leonard Scigaj is the first to define ecopoetry - Marked by its appreciation of nature as a series of self-regulating cyclic systems - as separate and distinct from nature or environmental poetry. Ecopoetry insists that the interests of humans must be balanced with the needs of nature
