Overview

A sequence of poems and prose questions, Dwelling: an ecopoem began as a conversation with Martin Heidegger’s essay “Building Dwelling Thinking” and became an expansive journey into the notion of home. With sharp focus, at once moving and lyric, Scott Edward Anderson explores the many facets of our dwelling on earth by drawing upon elements of nature, community, place, and love. Along the way, Anderson considers the impact of language, writing, displacement, and the city as ecosystem, ultimately concluding, “Home or the idea of home haunts us . . . we are always searching for it, for the way ‘back home.’ All we can do is try to make it, try to bring forth home as dwelling.”
