This collection of ecopoems interrogates the complex human/non-human relationship in the Anthropocene. Rooted in the author’s deep fascination and scientific knowledge of nature, these poems take literal experiences and explore/distort them with language. Moving away from the traditional nature poem, this work enacts an ecology where a human speaker is decentralized and earth regains agency.
