    Too bad not everyone has Ken Ingham's passion for the planet Earth. If they did, we'd not have global warming accelerating in a parabolic curve upward and off the charts, causing artic tundra to turn into lakes bubbling methane measured in magnitudes of 100 tons per day. If they did, they would understand that Earth (Gaia) is the heroine and is a living organism, and in that sense deserves an epic written about her. Hence, I gather, the title, ECOEPIC, or eco-epic. Somehow the coined word lacks resonance and is a hard sell. Nevertheless, the title poem came alive for me with the introduction of the antagonist, the Swamp Developer. Unfortunately he seemed to lose his focal position, and the poem, which had felt to me like a treatise up until that point became one again. (Not that we don't need a treatise on restoring health to Gaia.) What I take home from the title poem is the poet's passion, his acute observational powers, his knowledge, and his huge desire to see all of us... More > nurturing Gaia back to health. All of this is so strong one finishes the poem feeling that he personally knows the poet. That is worth the price of admission. Thank you, Ken Ingham. The "And other poems" contains some real gems. In my copy I earmarked for subsequent re-reading "Connecting with Creation" for its ability to make the reader feel at one with Nature, "Whose Duck?" for it's skillful play on the conflict between a hunter and a courageous woman (and its surprise ending), and "I Am Endangered," for its central truth encapsulated in a marvelous closing metaphor.< Less
