Review

Praise for "Modernist Women Poets"

"The poems collected in Modernist Women Poets: An Anthology are diverse, but they are linked, too. Each seems to gaze directly and speak indirectly -- or sometimes vice-versa -- in that quintessentially modernist mode, even as the particulars of intention and expression are distinct and individual. [...] How inspiring and heartening it is to read their daring attempts to do something entirely new with language, undertaken both in seriousness and wild play." --"Bookslut"

"coeditors Hass (a former U.S. Poet Laureate) and Ebenkamp have produced that rare, valuable thing: a volume that could be at once a resource for educators, and a fine entree for the general reader." --"Publisher's Weekly" Starred Review

Praise for Robert Hass

"[Robert] Hass has significantly broadened the role of poet laureate to include not only his love for poetry but also his concern for literacy and his passion for environmentalism."--"Los Angeles Times"

"No Practicing poet has more talent than Robert Hass."--"The Atlantic Monthly"

"Murphy does not shy away from the stark realities of the destruction we are wreaking in every ecosystem on Earth. And though her book is dense with facts, it reads like poetry or a series of koans. The reader can feel the author's presence, the inspiration of her roosters and dog, and the rhythmic shadow of trees and winter grass outside her window. It's a book that must be absorbed slowly." --The Shambhala Sun

Product Description

We all know our earth is in trouble. But is it beyond repair? Are we stuck with a planetary disaster we cannot hope to address?

Despite the reality we find ourselves in, Zen practitioner and author Susan Murphy reminds us of the astounding intelligence and magnificence of nature and argues that not only is it not too late, but that we all have the capacity to embrace this challenge with a sense of hope and reason.

By shining a sober light on the current state of emergency, Murphy delivers a brilliant rethink of the crisis we face, radically reimagining the stories we tell ourselves about the world, and illuminating the ways humanity might become the solution, rather than the problem.

What if we were to choose courage and resolve, rather than fear? What if we discovered the difference each of us could make and started to listen closely to what the earth is saying, and to our own connections with it?

In the tradition of the great eco-theologian Thomas Berry, Minding the Earth, Mending the World offers a profoundly hopeful second chance to engage with what it means to deeply mind the earth once more.
