About this item
Now/Here focuses on the diversity and power of the natural environment, examining the tensions and oppositions that exist within climate, land, time, and change. Rather than focusing on the quiet and idyllic beauty of the rural, many poems describe the harshness and hardships of the extreme and highly versatile landscape and weather.
