Poetry Imagining the Earth and Envisioning the Natural World

The natural world has been one of the recurring subjects of poetry, frequently the primary one, in every age and every country. Nature poetry engages with, describes, or considers the natural world. Henry David Thoreau is the guiding spirit of American nature writing in general and American nature poetry in particular. Walden is a forerunner and a reference point for green writing and reading, as well as green thinking. The Academy of American Poets offers nature inspiration—from the poetry of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson to the works of Emily Dickenson and, more recently, Susan Griffin’s anthology Black Nature, which celebrates the overlooked tradition of African American nature poetry over four centuries.
