FARRIER, David
Anthropocene Poetics. Deep Time, Sacrifice Zones, and Extinction

How poetry can help us think about and live in the Anthropocene by reframing our intimate relationship with geological time.

Looking at a diverse array of lyric and avant-garde poetry from three interrelated perspectives, David Farrier rethinks the environmental humanities from a literary critical perspective. Anthropocene Poetics puts a concern with deep time at the center, defining a new poetics for thinking through humanity’s role as geological agents, the devastation caused by resource extraction, and the looming extinction crisis.[publisher's note]
