SHARP EYES John Burroughs and American Nature Writing

Charlotte Zoe Walker. John Burroughs, the genial and tremendously popular author of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, has gained renewed appreciation at the end of the twentieth century. His quiet approach to nature writing a combination of scientific observation and generous poetic spirit has informed generations of readers. This book is a testament to the importance of his work in modern literature. The essays collected here -- the first critical compendium about Burroughs -- show the breadth and depth of his achievement. In addition to exploring the historical aspects of Burroughs’s life and character, these works illuminate his role as a writer and his relationships with such contemporaries as Whitman, Thoreau, Emerson, and Muir. Frank Bergon discusses Burroughs as environmentalist, Bill McKibben writes on Burroughs and the call of the not so wild, Daniel Payne expounds on Burroughs’s religion of nature, Wendell Berry considers the sacred economy of homesteading, and Ralph Black provides an analysis of Burroughs and the poetics of the nature essay. This book will have special appeal to those interested in nature writing, American literature, and the environmental and cultural history of New York State. A section on the history and current use of Burroughs’s work in the classroom also makes the book a valuable resource for teachers. 6x9 200+ pages. Paper. SEJ01. 24.95
