Earth Songs PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Earth Songs free pdf This wide-ranging collection is an anthology of contemporary eco-poetry. The poems testify to the modern violation of the natural order but also sing the diverse beauty of the earth. They celebrate wildlife, the seasons, wilderness and the way in which our lives are in constant creative or destructive play with the whole of nature. Many contemporary poets, defying all current literary fashions, are writing an eco-poetry of great precision, power and lyrical elegance- a poetry to take the environmental agenda of the 21st century into the imagination. The poets featured include Wendell Berry, Sujata Bhatt, Eavan Bolan, John Burnside, Gillian Clarke, Kevin Crossley-Holland, Dana Gioia, Thom Gunn, Seamus Heaney, Jeremy Hooker, Grevel Lindop, Michael Longley, Jem Poster, Kathleen Raine, Peter Redgrove, Jeremy Reed, Carol Rumens, Penelope Shuttle, Gary Snyder, Pauline Stainer, John Heath-Stubbs, George Szirtes and George Tomlinson.
