Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Synopsis:

In Imagination in Place, we travel to the local cultures of several writers important to Berrys life and work, from Wallace Stegners great West and Ernest Gainess Louisiana plantation life to Donald Halls New England, and on to the Western frontier as seen through the Far East lens of Gary Snyder. The collection also includes portraits of a few of Americas most imaginative writers, including James Still, Hayden Carruth, Jane Kenyon, John Haines, and several others.

Berry laments todays dispossessed and displaced, those writers and people with no home and no citizenship, but he argues that there is hope for the establishment of new local cultures in both the practical and literary sense.

For Berry, what is “local, fully imagined, becomes universal,” and these essays serve as a reminder that a place indelibly marks its literature just as it determines its watershed community of plants and animals.
