Abstract

This essay addresses three questions:
- What special challenges to poets does an age present in which human beings have acquired an influence over the Earth's physical and biological systems on a scale such that its traces will be visible as a geological layer millions of years hence, long after the probable extinction of our species?
- What does poetry exploring human subjectivity and behaviour in the age of planetary responsibility have in common with the German nature poetry of Classicism and Romanticism?
- And what distinguishes it from the environmentally committed poetry written in Germany in the 1970s and 1980s?
