Dark Mountain 2 Reviewed in the Ecologist

“Dark Mountain Issue 2 is one of the most unique

environmental books out there

– part dystopian poetry along the lines of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road;

part post-apocalyptic River Cottage

with the rest being a slice of philosophy

that only ever becomes clear once the reader immerses themselves

in the works within.

The contributions are consistently of a high standard,

no matter what the form.

In fact, it’s worth reading for the sheer variety

of literary reaction to the potential ending of our cultural systems

as much as to see what the movement is about.

As with many natural systems;

the whole provides far more to think about than

the sum of the individual elements.”
