Soul of the Earth

Soul of the Earth21 Poets, 1 Planet… An anthology to inspire hope in humanity – full of ‘lifeboat poetry’, Soul of the Earth is life-affirming, accessible and profound. Challenging received wisdoms and pushing boundaries, these cutting edge poems are from living writers who all share a love of the Earth and haven’t given up on humans either.

From the pithy to the epic, there’s something here for all poetic tastes. All poems are from a new generation of writers concerned with the state of the planet – vivid, contemporary voices, daring to express and explore a eco-spiritual dimension to life on Earth; and in doing so, suggesting that a way out of our global ecological crisis of resources, financial meltdown and bankruptcy of the spirit is to look beyond the impasse of reductionist materialism, rapine capitalism and aggressive politics.

With contributions from poets from the USA, Canada, UK, New Zealand and Australia, this anthology reaches out across the globe to embrace the challenges and beauty of being alive on Earth in the 21st Century. Visit  for more details and order a copy, available December 21, 2010.
