Can Poetry Save the Earth?
A Field Guide to Nature Poems



In this thought-provoking book, John Felstiner explores the rich legacy of poems that take nature as their subject, and he demonstrates their force and beauty. In our own time of environmental crises, he contends, poetry has a unique capacity to restore our attention to our environment in its imperiled state. And this, in turn, may just make us better stewards of the earth.
