How to Love the World
More and more people are turning to poetry as an antidote to divisiveness, negativity, anxiety, and the frenetic pace of life. How to Love the World: Poems of Gratitude and Hopeoffers readers uplifting, deeply felt and relatable poems by well-known poets from all walks of life and all parts of the U.S., including Joy Harjo, Donald Hall, Naomi Shihab Nye, Ross Gay, Tracy K. Smith, and others. The work of these poets captures the beauty, pleasure, and connection readers hunger for. How to Love the World, which contains new works by Ted Kooser, Mark Nepo, and Jane Hirshfield, invites readers to use poetry as part of their daily gratitude practice to uncover the simple gifts of abundance and joy to be found everywhere, with moments of stillness and invitations for writing and reflection throughout. Reading group questions and topics for discussion at the back of the book can be used to facilitate discussion in a classroom or any group setting.
