Description

Using Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass as a springboard, Corinne Lee's second book of poetry is an eco-epic that investigates and embodies the deterioration of America's environment due to industrial agriculture, fossil fuels, war, racism, and technology. Lee's book-length work draws upon a variety of poetic forms and histories-especially events in 1892, which included a surge in lynching in America and the beginning of our coup d'etat of Hawaii-to examine how modern technology facilitated the Holocaust, sustains America's racist prison industrial complex, fuels climate change, and ultimately underlies what has been called the Sixth Extinction. A daring and dazzling narrative of great originality, Plenty advocates a feminist ecobuddhist perspective: only by dismantling false hierarchies, especially those of patriarchal capitalism, are we able to recognize that all agents of environmental collapse are one with us. From the Trade Paperback edition.
