Camille T. Dungy on Nature Poetry

“One of the reasons that we write is to see the world reflected in a way that makes sense to us.” In this Furious Flower interview from 2015, Camille T. Dungy speaks about how editing the anthology Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry (University of Georgia Press, 2009) helped articulate her views on nature poetry. A profile of Dungy by Renée H. Shea appears in the May/June issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
