Review "An interdisciplinary extension to studies of space and place. Responding to the cultural and environmental crises the term 'Anthropocene' shoulders, the book purpose is to pose a single question: how to rethink our place on this planet through poetry? Tom Bristow takes the work of three contemporary poets - John Burnside, John Kinsella and Alice Oswald - to reveal how an environmental poetics of place is of significant relevance for the Anthropocene: a geological marker asking us to think radically of the human as one part of the more-than-human world."
