About the author

The poems in Other Nations: An Animal Journal challenge the notion that animals are on this planet solely for humans to use and exploit. Instead, the poems recognize the individuality of each animal with the view that animals are, as the naturalist Henry Beston saw them, "other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

PRAISE FOR OTHER NATIONS

"With the consummate eye of a gifted poet, Maria Famà takes us on a journey into
the hearts and souls of animals—feral and domesticated—that tame our human arrogance.
Her beautiful poems help us view the world through their eyes, feel the rhythms of their lives,
experience the world through the non-human lens of the creatures—from lions and elephants to birds, dogs, cats, and, yes, even rats—that grace our planet. In doing so, she frees us
from our human-centric hubris and paves the way for a deeper understanding
of our connection to all beings, big and small, that share our planet with us.
Bravissima!

"The sun of Maria Famà's universe rises above Canyon de Chelly's juniper trees, sage brush;
illuminates the eagle guide's flight over Anasazi cliff dwellings;
primordial seashells of past oceans; the lonely dolphin's aimless splashing around the pool; echoes a cricket's rush hour song in the humid August subway station, and in Maria Famà's kitchen. Humor, wit, poignancy—poetry lovers and lovers of animals will relish every poem in Other Nations.
