"The Ecopoetry Anthology is an impressive collection of poetry that has succeeded in inclusively and impressively nudging the dial further toward collecting, understanding, and redefining the interaction of poetry, poets, and the natural world." --

"Ann Fisher-Wirth and Laura-Gray Street's rich and generous The Ecopoetry Anthology... Here is bounty indeed--an innovative anthology drawing upon 150 years of American poetry about nature, animals and our precious environment." -- Shelf Awareness

"Ravishing, devastating, and uplifting, this is a mighty, conscionable, and defining anthology of vital poetry shaped by profound environmental intelligence." -- Booklist

"The Ecopoetry Anthology is a beautifully constructed, carefully planned, and intelligently framed volume." -- Colorado Review

"Impressive in the scope and diversity of poets included, The Ecopoetry Anthology is poised to become the definitive anthology of American ecopoetry." -- ISLE Journal

"I've always thought poetry could change the world, and with the best energies of Robert Hass, Ann Fisher-Wirth and Laura-Gray Street, and these assembled poets, I believe we have a chance."-- Washington Independent Review of Books

"The strength of The Ecopoetry Anthology is in its companionable, earthbound perspective, poem after poem. Cutting a broad swath from "the natural history of tears" (Peter Gizzi) to "surreal/popcorn surrounded by the reborn" (Jack Collom), the editors have assembled, with curatorial finesse, a genuine constellation of feisty, testy, funny, worried, disconcerted, perplexed, grieving, and roaring poems."-- Chicago Review

"Poetry might not derail the course we're on, but the poems gathered here just might soothe what ails us." -- Rain Taxi

"Puts traditional nature poetry in conversation with the ecocentric avantgarde."
-- American Poetry Review

"A definitive new collection of poems about nature and environment." -- Orion
