Sobre El Autor

Wendell Berry The prolific poet, novelist, and essayist Wendell Berry is a fifth-generation native of north central Kentucky. Berry taught at Stanford University; traveled to Italy and France on a Guggenheim Fellowship; and taught at New York University and the University of Kentucky, Lexington, mostrar más before moving to Henry County. Berry owns and operates Lanes Landing Farm, a small, hilly piece of property on the Kentucky River. He embraced full-time farming as a career, using horses and organic methods to tend the land. Harmony with nature in general, and the farming tradition in particular, is a central theme of Berry's diverse work. As a poet, Berry gained popularity within the literary community. Collected Poems, 1957-1982, was particularly well-received. Novels and short stories set in Port William, a fictional town paralleling his real-life home town of Port Royal further established his literary reputation. The Memory of Old Jack, Berry's third novel, received Chicago's Friends of American Writers Award for 1975. Berry reached his broadest audience and attained his greatest popular acclaim through his essays. The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture is a springboard for contemporary environmental concerns. In his life as well as his art, Berry has advocated a responsible, contextual relationship with individuals in a local, agrarian economy. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

These poems are very personal. As in, they are all very specific to Wendell Berry. They are all told from the viewpoint of a man, specifically Wendell Berry. They are very specific to a place, eastern Kentucky. There is very little universality to be found here. And I'm confident that Berry would say that is both all right and somewhat the point.
From an artistic and technical standpoint, there are images and metaphors used many times in different poems. There is just a feeling of sameness across the collection. I cannot recommend it.… (más)

This book is billed as Berry's thoughts on race relations in 21st century America. And it is that, but only in part, and a smaller-than-expected part, at that. The book suffers from an infelicitous examination and defense of Robert E. Lee. I found Berry's points there less than convincing. I was tempted to abandon the book at that point. But I stuck with it and was rewarded in the final third.
The audiobook reader, Nick Offerman, is the perfect voice for Berry's work, IMO.

Based on the samples on Audible, I just could not summon the enthusiasm to commit to Berry's novels, even though they are praised by people whose opinions I respect and usually share. Then I saw this collection of essays written by Berry between the mid-60s and 2014, and read by Nick Offerman (who, I knew, is a fan of Berry's).

There are essays in here which I wish everyone could/would read. Berry brings a perspective not often heard in this country anymore. It is one he holds with a grounded (but not rabid) conviction and consistency across multiple decades. And he delivers his well-reasoned thoughts with a precision of language which leaves me in awe. Do yourself a favor: read this book.… (más)

This book touched my own memories and experiences in a way that I know it would not for anyone who has no experience of farm life. And now, having read this one, I feel relatively certain I don't have to read any more in the series. Not because the writing is lacking. Far from it. But I get the impression that the other books will be more of the same sort of interlocking stories of the characters appearing here.
