Description

Muller’s dramatizations of these two epic poems have been described as “haunting” and “entrancing” by critics. The two poems were written by Williams as part of a series that he had hoped to use to bring the plight of the earth to the fore. Both deal with the devastation of the natural environment and the impact humans are having on creatures we are meant to care for. However, according to reviewer Karen Rutter, they are “no bunny-hugging piece of green … propaganda. The language is graceful and elegant, the mood evocative but not emotionally manipulative, the content realistic.”
