Merwin Studies is dedicated to exploring all aspects of this poet/planter’s ecologically minded poetry and poetics.  Merwin has planted palms and plants for over thirty years at his home in Hawaii, creating “one of the most extensive private palm collections in the world”  (Merwin Conservancy).  The number of trees he has planted far exceeds the number of poems he has written.  His planting and his poetry contribute, inseparably so, to the real work of dwelling on the earth. Merwin Studies, then, is a place to engage this work and circulate it through myriad communities.
