ENTANGLEMENTS — New ecopoetry

David Knowles & Sharon Blackie (eds)

Contributor royalties from sales of Entanglements will be donated to the John Muir Trust:

Entanglements is an anthology of new poetry driven by the joy of our intimate entanglement with life – set against the spectacle of a planet-wide ecological catastrophe of our own making. It brings together work by international figures (including Jorie Graham, John Kinsella, Les Murray, Alice Oswald, Ruth Padel) with poetry from emerging voices.

Entanglements contains forms and styles from many branches of the broad tree of ecopoetry. Poetry often finds new heights when the finest craftsmanship is placed under stress – political or cultural oppression, war, loss. The poetry in this anthology reaches the highest peaks because it yearns for the ground of our connection with the planet – our entanglement with it – while facing our species’ manifest ability to disconnect from and trample on the only home we have.

Entanglements has an introduction by Dr. David Borthwick, University of Glasgow, and includes poetry by:
