Abstract
  • What constitutes ecopoetics is a subject of interesting and worthwhile debate, but generally speaking, ecopoetics is a term for the environmentally-driven, innovative writing that has followed our nation’s move from primarily rural to primarily urban economies and communities; that has been informed by the science and technology of the Industrial Revolution and beyond; and that has come after and in subversion of the more traditional nature poetries (in Romantic and Transcendentalist veins and otherwise). It’s the poetry that’s grown out of the environmental movement that began to take shape in the 1960s, influenced by the work of Rachel Carson and many others, a movement which exists parallel to—and, ideally, joins forces with—movements for economic, social, racial and gender justice, and informed by the postmodern framework that emphasizes these intersections. The editors of The Ecopoetics Anthology call it “poetry that...is shaped by...[the environmental] crisis” and that “enacts through language the manifold relationship between the human and the other-than-human world” (though I’d argue that perhaps this definition upholds the binary notion of human and Other more than is of interest to most ecopoetics practitioners).
