Dr the edge chronicles torrent. Edward O the edge chronicles torrent. Wilson, world-renowned Harvard entomologist and two-time Pulitzer-Prize winning author, points out in the epigraph to this unique collection of poetry, ” the edge chronicles torrent. the edge chronicles torrent..the better an ecosystem is known, the less likely it will be destroyed.”

This is the premise of “THE DIRE ELEGIES: 59 Poets on Endangered Species of North America” and why author Bill McKibben says in the book’s foreword, “These magnificent poems work as a chant to summon more” of the love to save the endangered from extinction. It’s also why writer Susan Cerulean has called the book an “important manifesto: a must-read for our times.”

A helpful feature of the anthology is the species notes that accompany the poems each time a new species is introduced.

For example, when readers encounter Minnesota poet Shirley S. Stevens’s poem “On Spotting a Pygmy Owl,” they also learn: “The endangered cactus ferruginous pygmy owl, Glaucidium brasilianum cactorum, of the U.S. Southwest and Mexico, numbered only 12 birds when it was listed in the U.S. in 1997. A USF&WS recovery team began its work to rescue the species in 1998, but its fate remains precarious.”
