An Apologie for Geopoetry

The geologist Dr. Eric Robinson has sent me a response to an earlier post on this blog, which I’ve pasted below.  Eric taught in University College London until 1999, during which time he became closely involved with the Geologists’ Association in its mission to take geology to a wider public. In the Geologists’ Association Newsletter in October 1992 he championed the poet Norman Nicholson as the archetypal ‘geologist’s poet’.  Nearly 20 years later, it was a pleasure to hear Eric speak on Nicholson at The Geological Society last year.
