Ecopoetics and the Global Landscape: Critical Essays surveys ecopoetry from a global perspective across different historical epochs. Its comparative approach foregrounds the importance of ecopoetics within the context of distinct national literatures and cultures to reveal the ubiquitous intersection of poetry with ecocriticism. The collection analyzes environmental problems resulting from the legacies of colonialism and focuses on issues of environmental justice and indigenous issues as well as on the intersection of genocide studies and environmentalism. It also examines ecologically-informed modes of relating to the world. In particular, it engages with interactions between the human and nonhuman as well as mind and matter. Finally, it broadens the scope of place to include both the absent land of exiled peoples, and the urban, built environment.

Isabel Sobral Campos's collection covers vast historical, geographical, and poetic terrain, contributing impressively to the trans-national emphasis in contemporary environmental humanities scholarship. The scope and uniqueness of this ecocritical volume-ranging from Australian aboriginal poetry to Palestinian poetry and Holocaust poetry, but also including modernist and contemporary experimental poetry in the U.S. and the U.K.-is breathtaking. -- Scott Slovic, University of Idaho, coeditor of The Routledge Handbook of Ecocriticism and Environmental Communication By juxtaposing canonical and neglected poets from a wide variety of global contexts, Ecopoetics and the Global Landscape provides a bold and compelling case for the persistence of environmental preoccupations in poetry across cultures and the unique capacity of poetry to assist us in understanding our tragic, fragile, and indispensable relationship to the physical world. -- George Handley, Brigham Young University, coeditor of Postcolonial Ecologies: Literatures of the Environment
Isabel Sobral Campos is assistant professor of literature at Montana Tech and the co-founder of Sputnik & Fizzle press.
