This essay was original a lecture given by White in 1966, in which he argued that many environmental issues were the product of Western views of nature. The essay is a little difficult in places, but if you read this introduction to an external site.)Links to an external site., it should give you solid footing as you read the essay itself. In his essay, Lynn White, Jr. writes of St. Francis: "He tried to substitute the idea of the equality of all creatures, including man, for the idea of man's limitless rule of creation." In ways, the following poems connect with this idea of "equality." For this assignment, there are four poems that you can potentially write about: Yusef Komunyakaa, "Blessing the Animals" ( to find the end) Gerald Stern, "Cow Worship Ellen Bryant Voigt, "Cow Galway Kinnell, "Saint Francis and the Sow Once you have read through these poems, try to observe your initial thoughts and reactions to them. Then you will write 2-3 paragraphs where you connect one or two of these poems to our class discussions of humans and nature. Your response should use specific quotations from the poems AND the Lynn White Jr. article. In this response, I would also like you to explain a little about your personal relationship with nature. How does it compare to what we've discussed in class? Do you have any sense of the source for your personal thoughts about nature? this is different from the one on top Response to Robin Wall Kimmerer, "Learning the Grammar of Animacy" Submit Assignment This article is in Colors of Nature, pp. 167-77. We will be focused on the section from p. 170 until the end of the article. I would also recommend listening to this with Kimmerer, which covers much of the same territory as the article. In her essay, Kimmerer discusses how the languages that we use affect our interactions with nature. She makes claims such as, "In English, you're either a human or a thing" (175), and "grammar is just the way we chart relationships in language" (176). I would like you to read Kimmerer's essay and respond to the claims she makes about language. In a paragraph of eight to twelve sentences, using specific quotations, explain the ways that you either agree or disagree with Kimmerer's claims. Does what she says about English and Native languages make sense to you? How does this compare with other languages you may speak or read?
