These collections of poems were inspired by authors that we had read in our Writing in an Endangered World class this semester. Within my anthology I used authors Linda Hogan, Gary Snyder and Wendell Berry to inspire my work. All of their work that was used was from The EcoPoetry Anthology edited by Ann Fisher-Wirth and Laura-Gray Street. Each of their poems brought back memories from the past, and each of my inspired poems have a memory from my childhood. Our Writing in an Endangered World class inspired me to be more environmentally conscious. Each poem within my final project raises awareness of the condition of the land in some way shape or form. It speaks of the land being fragile and if we don’t take care of it we will destroy it. The idea of the poems invoking a memory of my childhood only makes me want to protect the environment more. When I get older I want my children to be able to experience the world like I experienced it. I don’t want them to only be able to experience from old pictures on their phones. By saving the environment we enable our future generations to be able to experience the world like we did when we were young. The environment is a beautiful place and as a society we have to come together to protect and preserve it for the sake of all the future generations who have yet to experience it.
