I relished this remarkable volume of poetry for months a taste here and a sampling there It was so varied in its style from long rugged list like accountings of road journeys to fleeting ethereal portraits of nature Mountains were at the heart of it although it s a challenging book to fully grasp the connective tissue of especially for someone like me who d never read Gary Snyder before But as I read I felt at times like each word should be rolled over on the tongue handled examined considered before moving to the next it was that rich Upon finishing I immediately wanted to skim through again looking for persistent notions effecting language One I ll keep handy for a long time Recommended especially if you don t mind not always being sure what you are reading about

CHARACTERS Mountains and Rivers Without End õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB In simple striking verse legendary poet Gary Snyder weaves an epic discourse on the topics of geology prehistory and mythology First published in 1996 this landmark work encompasses Asian artistic traditions as well a. I first met Gary Snyder in person in the winter of 1976 in Grand Rapids Michigan at my alma mater Calvin College The previous year when I had been the Writers Guild chairman we had invited in three writers the novelist Chaim Potok who was the first rabbi to speak on Calvin s campus the beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and the Black Mountain poet Robert Creeley The following year Snyder came in His reading was typically gentle and almost aphoristic unassuming When we talked with him afterwards some of us who were studying the problem of world hunger asked him what he would do with what seemed like an intractable problem He replied that it was mostly a problem of will as human ingenuity was capable of dealing with it He said You can see if you fly in to an airport the solution presents itself to you immediately it shouts out to you All these finely manicured lawns highly fertilized well watered Instead of raising crops we water lawns as an increasing number of the world starves Gary Snyder is an American poet once associated with the Beats buddies with Philip Whalen Allen Ginsburg and Jack Kerouac Snyder was Japhy Rider in The Dharma Bums an essayist and environmental activist Snyder has sometimes been described as the laureate of Deep Ecology His work reflects his immersion in both Buddhist spirituality and nature and his poetics are grounded in ordinary speech patterns rather than forms like the sonnet or even haiku though he than anyone else brought haiku and other Japanese forms into the US and the west generally and much work by Ginsburg and Kerouac and others was much influenced over time by Snyder s introduction to eastern religion and culture Some of my favorite collections of poetry include Myths and Texts 1960 Regarding Wave 1969 Turtle Island 1974 The Old Ways 1977 and Practice of the Wild 1990 but in many ways his magnum opus is the text he worked on for four decades Mountains and Rivers Without End finally completed in 1996 I have some concerns that I m continually investigating that tie together biology mysticism prehistory and general systems theory he once said but the poetry itself never feels this heady It s common language and not obviously shaped It proceeds out of the every day Existential of today as is the Zen Buddhism he practiced This book is not my absolute favorite not as intimate seeming for me as Turtle Island or The Old Ways but it is impressive scanning the concerns of much of his career An essay Snyder writes as an appendix explains how the text came to be written and many of its sources in Japanese art and culture that he began studying as an undergrad at Reed College The heart of it is about mountains and rivers of the Pacific Northwest and the Sierra Nevada where he has been living since 1970 It s one long poem finally a kind of sutra an extended poetic philosophic and mythic narrative of the female Buddha Tara I first read it when it came out in 1996 and now for a second time over a month in reading a poem or so a day I made a commitment to reread it ever since I passed near his home through the mountains in late August of the past year I also read his Danger on Peaks 2004
