AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Clark seeks to 'apply Bookchin's theories, and those of his anarchist predecessors, in a reading of John Kinsella's poetry.' Clark concludes that: 'For a poet like Kinsella, whose environmental thought is informed by his readings in political theory, a socio-ecological perspective is quite apposite. Such an approach reveals the underlying concern of political organization and economic centralization evident in the various aspects of Kinsella's work, from his critique of colonial land appropriations and the impacts on the environment of unsustainable land-use practices, to his engagement with indigenous politics, pastoral ideology and animal rights.'
