We Animals: Poems of Our World
by Nadya Aisenberg
The anthology celebrates our home, and its many ecosystem, through the words of Wendel Berry, Pablo Neruda, Marianne Moore, Theodore Roethke, Gary Snyder and many more. This collection is a publication of the Sierra Club known for its conservation efforts of wild nature, and founded by John Muir in 1892
The collection is arranged into 5 parts, “Reverence,” “Dominion,” “Fraternity,” “communion” and “fantasy,” each section highlights the relationship between humans and nonhuman nature. In “fraternity” the poems emphasize the interconnectivity of humans but also shows how animals are anthropomorphized by society and as a result become separate from nonhuman nature.
