Imagination in Place

(2010)
A non fiction book by

 
"Our cultural tradition is in large part the record of our continuing effort to understand ourselves as beings specifically human." - Wendell Berry

In this varied and vibrant collection of new writings, Wendell Berry covers a wide landscape of interests relevant to us all, ranging from the public policy to nature and spirituality. He shares his inimitable perspective on matters that affect each of us on personal and public levels - indeed, this collection confirms what Berry readers have long known: Few writers in America can match the depth of his thought or the ringing clarity of his prose. Imagination in Place brings to date Berry's perspective on such essential current concerns as agriculture, sustainability, and the economy. He addresses the latter with his much admired essay "Faustian Economics," previously published in The Atlantic and included here - an especially prescient commentary given our country's current challenges with Late Capitalism. There are also beautiful essays of tribute, wherein Berry offers insights into the lives and works of such luminaries as Wallace Stegner, James Still, Gary Snyder, and Kathleen Raine. Altogether, readers familiar with Wendell Berry's work and those new to his thought will find the essays here to be full of extraordinary power and hope.
