News of the Universe: Poems of Twofold Consciousness

News of the Universe: Poems of Twofold Consciousness - Robert Bly, B. Ras Very nice anthology of poetry from all over the world, across generations. The theme is how our relationship with nature has changed over time. From Milton and Swift to Rumi, Rilke, Neruda, and Eskimo songs to Whitman and Wordsworth, and finally to contemporary poets like Mary Oliver, Wendell Berry, and Denise Levertov, the collection is full of great poems about our love of, relationship to, and often dominance of nature.
