Black Nature is the first anthology to focus on nature writing by African American poets, a genre that until now has not commonly been counted as one in which African American poets have participated. Black poets have a long tradition of incorporating treatments of the natural world into their work, but it is often read as political, historical, or protest poetry--anything but nature poetry. This is particularly true when the definition of what constitutes nature writing is limited to work about the pastoral or the wild. Camille T. Dungy has selected 180 poems from 93 poets that provide unique perspectives on American social and literary history to broaden our concept of nature poetry and African American poetics. This collection features major writers such as Phillis Wheatley, Rita Dove, Yusef Komunyakaa, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sterling Brown, Robert Hayden, Wanda Coleman, Natasha Trethewey, and Melvin B. Tolson as well as newer talents such as Douglas Kearney, Major Jackson, and Janice Harrington. Included are poets writing out of slavery, Reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts Movement, and late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century African American poetic movements. Black Nature brings to the fore a neglected and vital means of considering poetry by African Americans and nature-related poetry as a whole. A Friends Fund Publication.

Ecocriticism, a field of study that has expanded dramatically over the past decade, has nevertheless remained—until recently—closely focused on critical analyses of nature writing and literature of wilderness. Karla Armbruster and Kathleen R. Wallace push well beyond that established framework with this groundbreaking collection of essays by respected ecocritics and scholars from the literary and environmental arenas. Together, their work signals a new direction in the field and offers refreshingly original insights into a broad spectrum of texts.

Deeply concerned that a high percentage of African American men seem to be falling short of living a meaningful existence in today’s society, David J. Ramsey digs into his people’s colorful past in an attempt to explain their present predicament. Through a series of interviews with black men as well as women, Ramsey uncovers factors such as coping with abandonment and abuse, and the lack of guidance and support. Giving much emphasis to the significance of nurturing the family and responsible parenting, Ramsey also addresses the various issues encountered in relationships—from the fundamentals of love, courtship, and marriage to the excuses for infidelity. Infused with insightful advice and well-placed criticism, as well as anecdotes interspersed throughout, Black Men Still Exist seeks to reveal some of the compelling reasons behind a black man’s nature, encouraging the reader on a path to self-awareness, or self-improvement, where integrity, respect, and maintaining a sense of pride in one’s culture and race are of utmost importance.
