The Gary Snyder Reader: Prose, Poetry, and Translations, 1952-1998
Counterpoint, 2000 - 617 ページ
This monumental collection gathers essays, travel journals, letters, poems, and translations from one of the most influential literary voices of the twentieth century.. Gary Snyder has been a major cultural force in America for five decades-prize-winning poet, environmental activist, Zen Buddhist, and reluctant counterculture guru. Having expanded far beyond the Beat poems that first brought his work into the public eye, Snyder has produced a wide-ranging body of work that encompasses his fluency in Eastern literature and culture, his commitment to the environment, and his concepts of humanity's place in the cosmos. The Gary Snyder Reader showcases the panoramic range of his literary vision in a single-volume survey that will appeal to students and general readers alike.
