Publisher Comments:

When Gary Snyder was in his twenties working as a forester and logger in the Pacific Northwest, one of the older loggers told him, If you're gonna work these woods, don't want nothing that can't be left out in the rain. Those lines eventually inhabited one of his poems and inspired

Synopsis:

Inspired by the ancient Chinese proverb, “Theres nothing you can own that cant be left out in the rain,” this collection charts the journeys of the poet from 1947 to 1985. This book is unique among Gary Snyders numerable works, and the poems contained here are as broad in style as the compilation is in timeframe. With a new introduction by the author, Left Out in the Rain captures the evolution of the poet and the man.

Readers will travel with Snyder from the American West to the Far East. From Berkeley to Kyoto, his imagery provides insight into the natural world as well as the human experience. With the span of a few words, Snyder can reveal a universe and then two pages later deftly handle a villanelle. Sensual, sardonic, meditative, epigrammatic, formalist—whatever the tone or structure, these poems all bear the indelible stamp of a master. Always evocative, they remind us why Snyder is one of our most heralded and beloved contemporary poets.
