Spiritual World of Nature: Nature Poetry as Spiritual Scriptures
Monday, November 26 from 1:30 – 3:00pm
From England’s romantic poets through Emerson to Whitman and a host of subsequent poets, luminous scriptures of spiritual inspiration have come down to us transcending creeds on the common ground of the vast dazzling miracle of Nature. Jeff Poniewaz and Antler, noted Nature poets, take us on a tour of this spiritual eloquence that rivals the best poetry found in the scriptures of the world’s religions. They are both eco-poets. Antler was Milwaukee’s poet laureate 2002-2004. Jeff taught “Literature of Ecological Vision” via UW-Milwaukee 1989-2009. They are also the featured keynote poets at the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets’ 2012 fall conference November 2-4 in Stevens Point, this fall’s theme being “Rethinking Nature Poetry. ”
