The three sequences in the book—"Logging," "Hunting," "Burning"—show the remarkable cohesiveness in Snyder's writings over the years, for we find the poet absorbed, then as now, with Buddhist and Amerindian lore and other interconnections East and West, but above all with the premedical devotion to the land and work.

May 10, Mare rated it it was amazing. Snyder's book-length poem can be called mythopoeia; creating modern myth based upon modern culture and history.

Snyder's previous work and environmental concerns form the background of his mythic poem.

The three religions, Buddhism, Christianity, and Judaism reflect his beliefs in his work. I had to read the work twice. The first allowed me to read the poem for rhyme and the second for reason, no pun intended. I do not recommend this to anyone wanting and easy read. For those wishing to be chall Snyder's book-length poem can be called mythopoeia; creating modern myth based upon modern culture and history.


For those wishing to be challenged and inspired and enjoy Snyder's work, read, even read it aloud to yourself or someone else. Dec 29, Joana rated it really liked it. Aug 15, Nikki rated it really liked it.

A small and lovely book of poems that is meant to be savored and deconstructed. Some of the images may not hold up as well as they did in the s, but the sounds and images here call to mind Snyder's work in the Northwest. Feb 06, Rachel rated it really liked it.

Aug 10, Michael Canoeist rated it liked it Shelves: freedom , religion , poetry , beat-generation , s. The good: these poems from the s are published as one entity, whether that was Gary Snyder's original conception or no, as he was writing them down. It is actually called Myths and Texts. And they work as one entity, divided up into three sections, and you get the thoughts, feelings, and observations of a something young man whose love of outdoor living caused him to work both as a summer forest ranger for several years, and as a logger for some other extended period.

Later, he went to Ja The good: these poems from the s are published as one entity, whether that was Gary Snyder's original conception or no, as he was writing them down. Later, he went to Japan and was a seriously practicing Buddhist. For me, Snyder is the most interesting author to come out of the Beat Generation. In fact, as I think about the others, I would carry that comment one further step and say he is the only interesting author to come out of the Beats.

Anatole Broyard, if he counts, might have been another but his output excluding all those reviews is too limited to compare. A man is writing this poetry. It is, in various parts, physical, metaphysical, historical, religious, and heterosexual. I appreciate all those aspects! The bad: he was a something when he wrote this, he was often lonely up in those lookout perches, and there is a certain amount of adolescent bravado in his tone at times.

Those parts are dumb. Conclusion: it's a short book at 54 pages in my edition and is pretty easy reading.

Snyder has some more beautiful lyricism in The Back Country , and maybe a little greater emotional range too. But this poem is good. It has something to say and it says it. Confusion, pretension, irrelevance and murkiness are at a minimum -- well, maybe not a minimum! There are many echoes of Ezra Pound in it; I liked it. An excerpt: Sourdough mountain called a fire in: Up Thunder Creek, high on a ridge.

Hiked eighteen hours, finally found A snag and a hundred feet around on fire: All afternoon and into night Digging the fire line Falling the burning snag It fanned sparks down like shooting stars Over the dry woods, starting spot-fires Flaring in wind up Skagit valley From the Sound. Toward morning it rained. We slept in mud and ashes, Woke at dawn, the fire was out, The sky was clear, we saw The last glimmer of the morning star. Um, can you imagine Allen Ginsberg or Lawrence Ferlinghetti writing that? Much less doing it!!

Jack Kerouac would have started up with great enthusiasm, but after a mile or so he'd drink the sixpack of beer he was carrying and decide the cosmic answer was to let the forest handle its own problems. Gotta respect Gary Snyder and his great vig-ah.

Many beautiful moments throughout his poetry. He carried high-quality poetic bloodlines. He might have been half-crazy, maddening, narcissistic and difficult, capable of that treacherous wartime betrayal in his madness , but he remains il miglior fabbro, maker of The Waste Land, and he is like a racehorse with a so-so record who nonetheless turns out to sire many great champions.

There is a lot more Ezra Pound than T. Eliot in the decades of poetry that followed.
