What nature

Author: Steve Fay
Publisher: Triquarterly Books
ISBN: 0810150786
Release Date: 1998-07
Genre: Poetry

Steve Fay's what nature brings a naturalist's attentiveness to poetry. As responsive to nature as Gary Snyder or Mary Oliver, Fay combines a command of the poetic craft with rich, descriptive exactness as he describes physical and psychological landscapes, particularly of his native Midwest.Central to what nature is "The Milkweed Parables", a long and atmospheric poem dealing with issues of nature, lineage, family, and history. As rich and sweeping as a novella, this remarkable poem is an inquiry into the interdependence of human life and the natural world. Showing startling range -- poems that move from political satire to portraits of loneliness and regret to humor -- these poems form a multidimensional meditation on the relationship of man to nature, and are a unique contribution to the canon of contemporary poetry.

Black Nature

Author: Camille T. Dungy
Publisher: University of Georgia Press
ISBN: 9780820332772
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Poetry

Black Nature is the first anthology to focus on nature writing by African American poets, a genre that until now has not commonly been counted as one in which African American poets have participated. Black poets have a long tradition of incorporating treatments of the natural world into their work, but it is often read as political, historical, or protest poetry--anything but nature poetry. This is particularly true when the definition of what constitutes nature writing is limited to work about the pastoral or the wild. Camille T. Dungy has selected 180 poems from 93 poets that provide unique perspectives on American social and literary history to broaden our concept of nature poetry and African American poetics. This collection features major writers such as Phillis Wheatley, Rita Dove, Yusef Komunyakaa, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sterling Brown, Robert Hayden, Wanda Coleman, Natasha Trethewey, and Melvin B. Tolson as well as newer talents such as Douglas Kearney, Major Jackson, and Janice Harrington. Included are poets writing out of slavery, Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts Movement, and late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century African American poetic movements. Black Nature brings to the fore a neglected and vital means of considering poetry by African Americans and nature-related poetry as a whole. A Friends Fund Publication.
