ABSTRACT
The article explores poet Wendell Berry's use of erotic imagery to discuss humans' relationship with land in a number of his poetic works dealing with farming. The connections between Berry's metaphors on human sexuality and land and ecofeminist writing are given particular focus. It is argued that Berry's writing does not support traditional patriarchy. Poems discussed include "The Man Born to Farming," "The Current," and "Enriching the Earth."
