Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Translated from the Spanish by various translators in a bilingual edition. EARTH, WATER AND SKY: A BILINGUAL ANTHOLOGY OF ENVIRONMENTAL POETRY showcases ten Argentine and Uruguayan poets writing about the pressing issues that face our planet and how to build a a sustainable future. Editor Jesse Lee Kercheval has paired poets and translators to produce a bilingual anthology that is both inspirational and instructive and reminds us how powerfully poetry can touch our minds and hearts.
The poets were selected from a call for the SARAS (South American Institute for Resilience and Sustainability Studies) Prize in Poetry. SARAS is a transdisciplinary institute designed to help South America build a sustainable future. The three prize winners: Natalia Romero of Buenos Aires, Argentina; Sebastian Rivero of Colonia de Sacramento, Uruguay; and Virginia Lucas of Montevideo, Uruguay attended the annual SARAS conference in Uruguay and read their work to the assembled scientists. This collection includes the prize winners and seven other selected poets dedicated to integrating art with social and natural sciences.
