Summary:
American nature poetry is presently adjusting to recent critical movements and attempting to address prevailing fundamental notions concerning humans and their relationships with nature. The authors whose poetry is examined here, whether they approach a large and often frightening American nature as pilgrims or postmodern philosophers, exemplify both this dividedness and the ability to discover the means for healing reconciliation through reconnection with the natural world.
