Outsiders: Poems about Rebels, Exiles, and Renegades

Outsiders: Poems about Rebels, Exiles, and Renegades Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Deep in the concrete canyons of even the largest cities, nature lurks. Its unpredictable energies animate not only squirrels and microorganisms, not only ginkgoes, roots, and rivers, but also the engines of human desire. Urban Nature captures the many faces of wildness in the city with poems by more than 130 emerging and recognized poets.

Rather than just lamenting the loss of paradise, these poems celebrate nature's resiliency. They memorialize a salamander's last stand in a parking lot, link the cosmos to the consumer ethos ("The Pleiades / you could probably get downtown"), evoke horses galloping between skyscrapers, and track geological time in a pothole.
