Wendell Berry á 0 characters Free read ✓ The World Ending Fire · PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook In a time when our relationship to the natural world is ruled by the violence and greed of unbridled consumerism Wendell Berry speaks out in these prescient essays drawn from his 50 year campaign on behalf of American lands and communities Mr Berry's sentences and stories deliver a great payload of edifying entertainment which I hungrily consume but it is the bass note of morality thumping through his musical phrases that guides me with the most constant of hands upon my plow Nick Offerman New York Times bestselling author of Paddle Your Own CanoeRead Berry with pencil in hand make notes and hope that somehow our country and the world will soon come to see the truth th. It has taken me nearly a year to finish this book and not because it is hard to get through Berry actually has a very accessible writing style No it has taken me a while because his essays are so full of new to me ideas and unusual perspectives that I had to leave some time in between essays to let each of his messages sink in Berry is a poet retired college professor essayist and environmentalist On top of that he is also a farmer I knew him mainly as a poet knew nothing about his farmer life and was not particularly interested in it either Yet the title of this essay collection drew my attention and leafing through it I was struck by his elouent careful almost mindful way of talking about the environment I purchased the book on the spot Every since then I have been reading the essays collected in this volume off and on At the heart of all of them is a central message we need to move away from large scale industrial living and learn to live with the land again That may sound old fashioned but Berry shows it is not only possible but outright necessary As he says himself and I m paraphrasing how can we hope to do well in the future if we do badly in the present 253His essays range from literal calls to action to meditations on nature and farming and short essays that read like opinion pieces I wasn t crazy about the literal calls to action such as The Way of Ignorance because I found them too on the nose They were at odds with the other pieces in which he waxes philosophical and meditative without growing too abstract These I really loved and luckily they formed the bulk of the essays in this volume I didn t necessarily agree with everything Berry said Sometimes he seemed a bit too self righteous for my tastes see Why I Am Not Going to Buy a Computer or downright old fashioned see Feminism the Body and the Machine Nonetheless he writes in such a thoughtful way that even in those moments I felt myself staying open to his point of view and hearing what he had to say And in precisely those moments he seemed to show me something that contradicts most of the things I believe in and stand for and that I could actually get behind if I followed his train of thought For example in the previously mentioned Feminism the Body and the Machine he argues that industrialization has robbed many people and especially women of meaningful work Does that make you bristle I know I felt the same way But then he starts explaining what he means and says the following among other thingsAnd what are we to say of the diversely skilled country housewife who now bores the same six holes day after day on an assembly line What higher form of womanhood or humanity is she evolving toward 249That really made me think And while I still believe there is such a thing as meaningful work in fact I think Berry doesn t dispute that either I also accept his suggestion that the country housewife he speaks of might do very valuable work at home as well and that this is not pointless I appreciate those insights gleaned precisely in the moments I got most annoyed Most of the time though I was already on the same page and Berry didn t have to convince me One of the first essays in the book on living with the land really getting to know the soil and the vegetation and farming with the seasons was beautiful and sensible I also really enjoyed his emphasis on the value of imagination religion and the arts especially writing He builds connections between these aspects of life and caring for the land that make sense but that I hadn t necessarily considered His essay Two Minds is probably the most perfect example of that and one of my favorites in this collection Like I said earlier he is elouent yet accessible My absolute favorite from this book however is the essay uantity versus Form It is a short essay in which he implicitly argues that a good life a life well lived is a simple life in which you are at home in your local landscape help others and follow your calling It is a life in which you are in full contact with everything things plants people around you 225 It is convincing and hard hitting and a welcome change from the barrage of articles on productivity As Berry shows productivity can also mean something else Hence uality versus form All in all this book has been the single most important influence in pushing me to live sustainably I am far from where I need to be but I am growing vegetables on the balcony drastically reducing my use of plastic packaging materials only using them if there is literally nothing else I can wrap stuff in taking only reusable bags to the store and am learning a lot about foraging and native flora I know it s next to nothing but it s a start Or as Berry writes in an essay on literacy that fits in seamlessly with his talks on the environment It is impractical only by the standards of uick profit and easy power Longer perspective will show that it alone can preserve in us the possibility of an accurate judgment of ourselves and the possibilities of correction and renewal Without it we are adrift in the present in the wreckage of yesterday in the nightmare of tomorrow 299
