Poets on the Power of Nature

“We in the fields, the watchers from the burnt slope, / Facing the west, facing the bright sky, hopelessly longing / to know the red beauty…” In this 2011 PBS NewsHour video, Jeffrey Yang reads William Everson’s poem “We in the Fields” along with other poems published in Birds, Beasts, and Seas: Nature Poems From New Directions, an anthology edited by the poet celebrating the seventy-fifth anniversary of New Directions. Yang’s new poetry collection, Line and Light (Graywolf Press, 2022), is featured in Page One in the May/June issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.

“Working with poetry is really stimulating because it can take you to a limit of human experience, it’s using language in the way that it exists in our minds and in the psyche,” says Moheb Soliman in this TPT Originals video on exploring place, identity, and the natural world in his debut collection, HOMES (Coffee House Press, 2021). Soliman is featured in “A Freeing Space: Our Seventeenth Annual Look at Debut Poets” in the January/February issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
