Green Green Green
A collection of hybrid essays that engage the intersection of habitats, horticulture, and histories both poetic and personal.
For earlier writers like Emily Dickinson and William Blake, the green world was a space of haunted opposites: life and death, innocence and experience, and the sensitivities of plants. In these essays, letters, repetitions, and experiments, Gillian Osborne draws on a poetic and scientific archive spanning from the late- eighteenth century to the present to explore contemporary meanings of green as both/and: environment as ailing and vital, global and close to home. This is na- ture writing as reading, and homemaking, in vicinity with others.
