"...I go to Nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more." — John Burroughs, The Gospel of Nature

Imagine Nature is a showcase of electronic broadsides devoted to nature poets and their work. Exploring the convergence of poetry, graphic arts, and the technology of the internet, this site updates the concept of poetry broadsides with multi-media imagery and sound. Readings by Stanley Kunitz and Galway Kinnell available with their respective poems reflect the collaborative effort of this collection. Also included are poems by Stanley Kunitz, Mary Oliver, Galway Kinnell, Michael McClure, Emily Dickinson, John Haines, and David Wagoner.

This project was led by Tom Moritz, Boeschenstein Director, Library Services. Content was coordinated by Mark Katzman, and designed by Fran Pollitt. This project was made possible with funding by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The original website was last updated in November 2003, viewable through the Wayback Machine, and was migrated to this platform in July 2020.
