Nature Poetry – An Introductory Reading Guide

Since this week marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day AND also falls within National Poetry Month, we offer the following guide to some of the most important nature poetry …

Included are twelve essential nature poets whose work we continually read and re-read. Where possible, we’ve also included links to previously posted examples of their work on our website.

11) Camille Dungy

“Addressing the paucity of African American poets in anthologies of nature poetry, Dungy stated in a 2010 interview for the Oakland Tribune, “I miss seeing writers of color in the conversation. Until we have greater variety in the conversation, it is not a conversation—it is a monologue.” To that end, Dungy edited Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry (2009), which won a Northern California Book Award and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award.” (via Poetry Foundation)
