Even when you take to the woods,
you’re taking political steps
on political grounds.
Apolitical poems are also political,
and above all shines a moon
no longer purely lunar.

—Wisława Szymborska


From a long look at the deep ecologies of the past, to personal intimations of compassion, the 19 poets in this anthology, among the best in Scotland, give their various all to articulate what Shelley wrote in his “The Defence of Poetry” that ‘poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world’. Thus by simply writing verse, poets use the tools of poetry – words – without threat or menace, to provide an exemplary alternative to strife, to the way we are destroying ourselves and our home.

—Gerry Loose (from the introduction)
