Abstract

presents a coffee-table compilation of well-researched examples of environmental devastation and possible remedies. In this vast context of "eco literature," Devil's Tango combines the poetic and the scholarly traditions. Devil's Tango is a must-read for all of us who must be concerned with the future of humankind and the well-being of our planet. Likewise, it is a must-read for its eloquent use of language, for its clear prose that at times is most sarcastic and at times most poetic, for its no-holds-barred condemnation of the nuclear industry, and for its messages of despair and of hope. Finally, Devil's Tango is a love song for a planet, its natural beauty, and its people.h Brian M. Reed. Nobody's Business: Twenty-First Century Avant-Garde Poetics. Ithaca: Cornell UP, 2013. 248p.
