Merwin, and Gary Snyder, America's foremost ecopoets, Scigaj explores each poet's depth of involvement in nature and his ability to use ordinary language that models biocentric ways of seeing nature. Just as a sustainable society does not depreciate its resource base, so a sustainable poetry does not restrict interest to textuality."@en ;
