Human | Nature: Poems for Pacuare

This book is the result of a rare conjunction of poets from all around the world, and the Pacuare Nature Reserve in Costa Rica.

The Pacuare Poetry Competition provided the impetus for each poet to write about the relationship between human beings and the natural world, encompassing the humour, sadness, generosity, violence, intimacy and distance of that relationship. It has never been more important for poetry to address this subject. We have gathered these poems into a book hoping that it will form part of an ongoing conversation.
