Description :

The 27 essays collected here pay tribute to America's finest agrarian writer: poet, novelist, social critic, and visionary Wendell Berry. Bill McKibben, Scott Russell Sanders, and Eric Freyfogle are among the contributors who explore aspects of the many concerns Berry has so eloquently addressed over four decades: consumerism, war, human-scale agriculture, community, marriage and sexuality, the politics of place. Long-time friends Wes Jackson, Gene Logsdon, Hayden Carruth, and Donald Hall delight us with warm, personal glimpses of the man - his humor, his family, his never-ending correspondence, his love for his Kentucky farm. Berry's Bible-based spirituality and often uneasy relationship with organized religion are discussed by several writers including Jason Peters, who finds in Berry's vision of mind and body an intuitively orthodox, anti-Manichean theology. Over and over, these writers (several of whom choose to reside, like Berry, in out-of-the-way corners of America's heartland) express gratitude to Berry for his profound influence not only on how they think, but how they choose to live their lives. From Barbara Kingsolver's humorous attempts to practice 'The Art of Buying Nothing' - her motto: 'What Would Wendell Do (WWWD)?' - to David Kline's 'How Wendell Berry Single-Handedly Preserved Three Hundred Years of Agrarian Wisdom,' this book inspires us to pick up Berry's work and read it again and again. 349 pp. N° de réf. du libraire 94363

Critique: "In many ways, this collection reads like a tribute to Wendell Berry and through this tribute the authors lead the reader into Berry's thoughts on community, responsibility, and fidelity and these qualities are the yardsticks of happiness. One of the points driven home by this collection is that one should not consider the writingsof Wendell Berry without also considering his life, and thus the title of this collection is appropriate. -- Jacob Jones, University of Florida" -- Jacob Jones
