The Forest

by

Susan Stewart plumbs human history in an attempt to articulate the way language, memory, and art join in evoking consciousness. "The Forest" is about violence and memory: the violence we do to our surroundings and to ourselves; and the propensity of the human mind to exploit and rationalize in its longing for truth. Following are few lines from her poem "The Forest" (which originally appeared in "TriQuarterly," a publication of Northwestern University): You should lie down now and remember the forest, for it is disappearing-- no, the truth is it is gone now and so what details you can bring back might have a kind of life. . . .
