About this book

Tracing connections between Gary Snyder and his Romantic and Transcendentalist predecessors - Wordsworth, Blake, Emerson, Whitman, and Thoreau - this study explores the tension between urbanization and overindustrialization. The dialectical relationship between Snyder and his predecessors reminds readers that nature is never a simple concept.

Reviews

"Paige Tovey's lucid study places Gary Snyder convincingly within an Anglo-American Romantic inheritance. Alert equally to continuities and differences, she enriches our sense both of Snyder's complexities and of the extraordinary suggestiveness of the great authors who stand behind him." - Seamus Perry, Fellow of Balliol College, University of Oxford, UK

"This lively but also scholarly book shows why we should think again about Gary Snyder. It productively enlarges our sense of the contexts with which his work engages, while offering impressively perceptive readings of individual poems." - Tony Sharpe, Senior Lecturer, Lancaster University, UK
