New and Selected Prose

Ethics, Aesthetics, and Watershed

Gary Snyder

1995 First Edition.  Counterpoint Press, Washington, D.C. 

Inscribed by the Pulitzer Prize winning poet on the title page

NEAR FINE un a NEAR FINE dust jacket protected in a clear Brodart dust jacket cover.  Colored endpapers.  263pp.  "... we do not easily know nature, or even ourselves.  Whatever it actually is, it will not fulfill our conceptions or assumptions.  It will dodge our expectations and theoretical models.  There is no single or set 'nature' either as 'the natural world' or 'the natural of things.'  The greatest respect we can pay to nature us not to trap it, but to acknowledge that it eludes us and that our own nature is also fluid, open and conditional.  Hakuin Zenji puts it 'self-nature that is no nature ... far beyond mere doctrine.'  An open space to move in, with the whole body, the whole mind.  My gesture has been with language."
