The Echoing Green PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Echoing Green free pdf "The Echoing Green: Poems of Fields, Meadows, and Grasses "is a unique anthology of poetry about the natural world. The rich poetic history of grass spans the centuries, from the pastoral poems of ancient Rome to the fields and prairies of the New World. The rapturous idealizations of William Blake s echoing green and William Wordsworth s splendour in the grass stand in vivid contrast to the obliterating greenery on human battlefields in war poems such as John McCrae s In Flanders Fields and Carl Sandburg s Grass, or to the work of contemporary poets Lucia Perillo, Harryette Mullen, Denise Levertov, and Gary Soto among them who reflect on an age of environmental crisis. Here is a rich array of poets from around the world, including Virgil, T ao Ch ien, Bash, Andrew Marvell, Robert Burns, Victor Hugo, Christina Rossetti, Rainer Maria Rilke, Anna Akhmatova, Willa Cather, Ingeborg Bachmann, Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney, Tomas Transtromer, Sherman Alexie, and Derek Walcott, in a dazzling celebration of our complicated relationship to nature."
