Editorial Reviews


"Forcefully written . . . Imagining the Earth is a clear-headed, deeply-felt meditation on nature, poetry, and human community."--Hollins Critic

"Justly recognized as a pioneer work of ecocriticism, Elder's Imagining the Earth unquestionably remains one of the most intellectually venturesome contributions to this fast-growing field."--Lawrence Buell, author of The Environmental Imagination

"An insightful study of contemporary American nature poetry and its precursors, tracing a recurring pattern of estrangement, transformation, and reintegration that enacts a circuit of healing.”--Cheryll Glotfelty, University of Nevada, Reno
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
