Warning: this anthology contains poems to enter the. bloodstream and rewild the spirit.

As with all life on Earth, the climate emergency, species extinction, ecological disaster, global pandemics, economic collapse, war, genocide and social injustice are all interconnected - how do we face our fears? How do we find the courage to rebel against forces ranged against the Earth?

This galvanising collection of poems spans 4,000 years of human history. Ranging from Nikolai Duffy's 'Against Metaphor' and Lord Byron's 'Darkness' to Allen Ginsberg's evocative 'Sunflower Sutra' and Jean 'Binta' Breeze's 'Tweet Tweet'. This book is not just a sanctuary in which to find solace from environmental grief but a manual for psychic resistance in the war against Nature.

As Pablo Neruda said, 'Poetry is rebellion.'

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This anthology is part manifesto for change, part elegy for a burning house, part summoning of an 'inner wild'. But it's also a book of timeless, irrepressible, rebel song. Jean Binta Breeze sings to William Blake, Selima Hill sings to Theodore Roethke and Nan Shepherd. Each song echoes, each chimes. As Paul Evans says in his introduction 'poetry is a quality of language as wild is a quality of nature'. Poetry Rebellion is essential.'
