The burgeoning field of ecocriticism is beginning to address the work of such ecopoets as Gary Snyder, Mary Oliver, W. S. Merwin, and Wendell Berry, among others, whose poems increasingly deal with ecological and environmental issues. Ecopoetry: A Critical Introduction assembles previously unpublished contributions from many of the most important scholars in the field as they discuss the historical and crosscultural roots of ecopoetry, while expanding the boundaries to include such themes as genocide and extinction, the lesbian body, and post colonialism. This volume gathers these necessary voices in the emerging conversation regarding poetry’s place in the environmental debate.

About the Author:

J. Scott Bryson is assistant professor in the English department at Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles.

From Library Journal:

In his comprehensive introduction, Bryson (Mount St. Mary's Coll., Los Angeles) traces the trajectory of nature as a theme in Western poetry, noting how it dominated in the centuries between Beowulf and Blake, took a dive in the age of Darwin, suffered at the hands of Frost and the other anti-Romantics, and eventually made a comeback thanks to Gary Snyder and the Beats. A subset of nature poetry, ecopoetry recognizes the interdependence of all creatures, views humbly the relation between human and nonhuman life, and cultivates skepticism toward the hyperrational, overtechnologized mindset that dominates present-day culture. The 17 essays that follow examine such classic poets as Emerson, Yeats, Jeffers, and William Carlos Williams; contemporaries like Snyder, W.S. Merwin, Mary Oliver, and Wendell Berry; and others who are lesser known. This first book by Bryson, who modestly terms it "a midterm report," is close to encyclopedic in its historical coverage as well as its attention to individual poets. Of special note is the concluding essay by Bernard W. Quetchenbach, which situates ecopoetry within the vast and varied landscape that is poetry today. For academic libraries.
