A RANGE OF POEMS: collected poems of Gary Snyder

£34.99

Product description

This book 'does what it says on the tin', presenting a wide selection of poems by this Pulitzer prize-winning American writer, often associated with the Beat Generation and the San Francisco Renaissance. Styles and forms are varied, but a clear theme of concern for, and love of, the natural world runs through the collection - unsurprisingly, perhaps, given the writer's involvement with Buddhism spirituality and environmental activism.

Gary Snyder (b. 1930) is an American man of letters, a poet, essayist, lecturer, and environmental activist. He has been described as the "poet laureate of Deep Ecology". He has won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the American Book Award. He has translated ancient Chinese and modern Japanese writings into English, and before retirement was an academic at the University of California, Davis and a member of the California Arts Council.

Our copy is in very good condition, with a good 'brown paper' dust jacket (price-clipped) with titles in black Japanese-style text on the front, plain black lettering on the spine and a whitish patch at the bottom of the rear fold-in. The book itself is bound in brown cloth with title etc. in plain gilt lettering on the spine and almost no signs of age, wear or use externally apart from a few very small spots of foxing on the outer edges of the text block. Inside, the binding is firm, all pages clean and bright. A previous owner's name is at the top R/H corner of the front fep. Various people were involved in the book's production: the Japanese-Zen-style black paintbrush lettering on the cover and the section headings are by Gary Snyder; the drawings of man, bird and deer are by Will Patersen; black and white frontispiece photograph of the author by Ken Walden, and the book was designed by Stuart Montgomery.
