'Tongues in trees' by Kim Taplin celebrates the woods, trees and meadows in a collection of stunning poems, prose and essays. Taplin believes that reverence for nature is vital to healthy spirituality and imagination. The continuing destruction of our forests is a sign of the short-sighted greed that is despoiling our world. Throughout the book Taplin considers how writers such as Keats, Ruskin, Hardy, J.R.R. Tolkien and Frances Horovitz celebrated the Greenwood and responded to its erosion.

This eloquent study of trees in the English literary imagination will inspire all those who are concerned about out environment.

'Poetry affirms the underlying unity between the natural and spiritual worlds. That is why all true poets are poets of the Greenwood.'
