On Earth, as it is, by Jane Lovell


A tender exploration of our planet’s environmental catastrophe by prize-winning poet Jane Lovell.

In On Earth, as it is, life on land, sea and air interweave and collide, highlighting relationships past and present. This new collection of 27 poems includes ‘Ming’, Lovell’s winning entry for the 2020 Ginkgo Prize.

Lovell’s poetry focuses on our relationship with the planet and its wildlife, taking a view informed by historical research and animated by solastalgia.

She has won the Flambard Prize (2015), the Wigtown Poetry Prize (2018) and the Geoff Stevens Memorial Prize (2020) and been shortlisted for several other literary awards including the Basil Bunting Prize, the Robert Graves Prize and Periplum Book Award, and was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
