In dialogue with each other and our environment, some 40 contemporary poets from Ireland and Galicia speak from the Atlantic edge of Europe, from the wild some might say, to the very heart of the matter: our damaged and threatened world. Carefully tending to our fragile ecosystem, this timely anthology of Irish and Galician poems asks how we live in this world, how we celebrate our intimate relationship with all living things. There is a sense of urgency here, of the need for action and the need to move ‘from ego to eco.’ Whether casting the bones or skylarking, these poems range across language and borders tracing every foot print, every paw print and every flight path through our shared world in the belief that A Different Eden is possible.
