About this product
- DescriptionUsing 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 techlogy. 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 techlogy 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.
