The Five Stages of Ecological Grief
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross famously described the five stages of grief as denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. The term "ecological grief" has been used to understand the loss humans experience as a result of ongoing environmental destruction. We will learn from contemporary ecopoets as well as investigate our interior and exterior landscapes in order to craft new poems that probe and illuminate this grief and lead us on a path to awareness, climate justice, and, perhaps, a sixth stage: action.
